Our Northern Spy Vineyard in Russian River Valley’s Green Valley AVA was an abandoned apple orchard that was groomed specifically for EnRoute. We are thrilled with the quality of the fruit coming from this site, which grows on the region’s famous Goldridge soils. Pommard 5, Mt. Eden, Swan, 2A and Dijon clones 115 and 777 are planted on 101-14 rootstock with 4 x 7 spacing in this vineyard. Our Amber Ridge Vineyard is located on rolling terrain in the upper Middle Reach area of the Russian River Valley. Planted with bilateral vertical trellising, the clonal mix includes Pommard 5, Calera and Dijon clones 115, 667 and 777 using 101-14 rootstock to limit vigor. Manzana Vineyard continues to play an important role in the Les Pommiers blend, with its hillside fruit planted in Green Valley to Dijon clones 114, 115 and Pommard 5.
The nose instantly fills with luscious aromas of juicy ripe red cherry, raspberry, star jasmine, with a light spice and mineral earthiness that while subdued, is still stark. Upon entry, the palate is silky and layered with flavors that are reflective of this wine’s aromatics—bright red fruit, rose petal and a touch of forest floor. The 2017 “Les Pommiers” boasts an exceptional purity of fruit, flavor and expression as it culminates in a bright, mouthwatering finish.

Wines Damaged During Shipment
In the small chance that you receive a damaged bottle of the wine from Vinobee, please contact us within 2 weeks of your purchase date.

Shipping during the summer months of the year has an increased risk of heat damage. Vinobee is not responsible for wine damaged due to heat. It is the customer's responsibility to be aware of shipping weather conditions when ordering.
If you decide to order and ship the wine during the summer months, the heat can cause the wine to expand and push against the cork, perhaps leaking past an imperfect cork. Some buyers may find this upsetting, but typically such short-term heat exposure creates no damage to the wine itself. However, do take care with older vintages, as they can be more fragile than newer ones. Slight leakage or seepage can be common during shipping and is not a valid reason to return the wine for a refund. If you are concerned about the heat damage, it’s best to wait until cooler months to order.
Enjoy your shopping at Vinobee and we hope you enjoy your wine!
