S.F. Chronicle Names Benovia Russian River Valley Chardonnay one of Top 10 Wines of 2009


Top 100 Wines 2009 | 2007 Chardonnay Russian River Valley

"Winemaker Mike Sullivan (formerly Hartford Court) is making a mark at this Santa Rosa label, and this bottling from two Green Valley sites demonstrates that restraint befits the fruit. A limpid profile of chopped apple and chervil, with rich oak tones (40 percent new) and a mineral snap. Bright citrus and a palate-gripping texture take center stage."
