Tasting Notes

92 points Wine Spectator: "Vivid aromas of crushed raspberry, anise, mineral and wildflowers are taut and focused in this medium- to full-bodied red, which is well-structured, ending with a mix of blackberry and black licorice. Drink now through 2017." (08/11) Those familiar with Russian River hsitory know that it's apples--the rare, tart, small Gravenstein apple, to be specific--that are the foundation of the region's agricultural history, not winegrapes. EnRoute's "Les Pommiers" pays homage to that history. Made with organically farmed fruit from the winery's vineyards in the Green Valley and Middle Reach subsections of the Russian River AVA, the wine has the signature Russian River red fruit, mostly raspberries and black cherries, flecked with plum and rose petal accents. With some air, secondary mineral and spice notes come out. Juicy and fresh, with layers of red fruit on the palate, the wine has a medium-bodied mid-palate with fully ripe tannins that give a little grip at the finish. EnRoute is a relatively new label from the family that brought you Nickel & NIckel, Far Niente and Dolce.
