2014 Woodenhead "Halfshell White-Wes Cameron Ranch" Russian River Valley French Colombard

SKU #1227876

French Colombard is the secret Chenin of Sonoma County. Once a ubiquitous variety used in making wines like California "White Burgundy," where no Chardonnay was available, FC enjoys a very small but refreshing revival in the hands of small producers like Woodenhead. This winery also produces a fantastic sparkling wine from old-vine French Colombard! Notes from the producer: "Medium gold in color, you'll first notice aromas of grass, honeysuckle, delicate green apple, and lemon meringue pie. Like a golden Sonoma County field, you're invited in to enjoy all it has to offer. It's crisp and refreshing, with a clean finish that makes it perfect for a hot day, or a nice easy conversation with friends. Take this wine on your next bicycling or fishing trip or pair it with some lovely oysters from Tomales Bay!"

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world. Click for a list of bestselling items from the United States.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Alexander Valley/Russian River

- Among Sonoma County's northernmost appellations, the Alexander Valley AVA acts as a gateway to neighboring Napa to the east and Mendocino to the north. It is a sprawling appellation, with pockets of distinct microclimates and soils, and as such, is home to a variety of wine grapes and styles. Nearly everything grows in the Alexander Valley, though Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay are the most widely planted grapes. The Russian River Valley lies to the south of Alexander Valley, and is marked by much cooler temperatures and frequently heavy fog. The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grown here are some of the state's finest and most sought-after. Aromatic whites like Gew├╝rztraminer and Riesling can also be successful, and sparkling wine production has a long history in the area.
