Need A Ranch Hand?

Life is like a salad. Just add ranch.

There are some people out there who believe ranch dressing is the be-all solution to making any food taste good -- whether it's a platter of carrots and celery sticks or a salad.

Those people have clearly never tried using Macrae Cole Ranch Riesling instead.

We're not saying Macrae Cole Ranch Riesling should be applied in the same way as ranch dressing, but accompany your salad or appetizer or meal with Macrae Cole Ranch, and it doesn't matter what you're eating because all you'll be thinking about is how good your wine tastes.

As you chomp through piece of lettuce after lettuce, what you'll really be thinking about is this wine's touch of sweetness that is perfectly balanced with bright acidity and a buoyancy of fruit. Can ranch dressing do that?

Features

2009 Cole Ranch Riesling 750ml 4-Pack

Beautifully light in color with just a hint of greenness in the hue.  The aromas of this wine are pure and fresh with hints of sweet and floral Riesling.  A very appealing, yet elegant aroma profile.  On the palate this wine has a touch of residual sugar, but is perfectly balanced with bright acidity and a buoyancy of Riesling fruit explosions in the mouth.
 
The Cole Ranch is a single vineyard appellation in the mountain reaches between Mendocino County's Anderson Valley and the inland valley where Ukiah is located.  The site, known for Riesling and Pinot Noir is a very cool site. Owned by the Sterling family who make Esterlina wines, Riesling from the Cole Ranch has become iconic as one of the great vineyard producers of new world Riesling.

Winery Details

Macrae Family Winery

Owners:
The Macrae Family

Macrae Family Winery was founded to create ultra premium wines from two of the best viticulture areas in the world, Napa and Sonoma. Russian River wine has developed an international reputation for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Along the Sonoma Russian River there are famous vineyards like Bacigalupi Vineyard known for growing the finest Pinot and Chardonnay. The River provides for warm days and cool nights as the fog rolls in allowing for the best natural growing environment for these fruits.

David Macrae (UC Davis) founded the winery to develop limited production wines that reflect the best winemaking skills from the top quality growers in the region. The wines are tasted and tested frequently to ensure their quality and then bottled as single vineyard designate wines reflecting the best of Russian River Bacigalupi and Napa Valley Stagecoach Vineyards. The wines are produced in limited quantities.
