RATINGS

93+ The Wine Advocate

...aromas of turned earth and savory tobacco with blackberries, black cherries, fresh blueberries and an underlying spicy layer. Medium-bodied and silky with a great core of earth, spice and fruit, it's framed by ripe, grainy tannins and has a long, layered finish.

93Vinous / IWC

Red berry fruit and floral notes are nicely delineated in a wine that is all about detail, precision and understatement.

93Jeb Dunnuck

Mulled cherries, menthol, sweet compost, and flowery incense notes...elegant, silky wine that has good acidity, as well as tannin.

92Wine Spectator

Expressive plum and blueberry flavors fold in, with raspberry and spice notes and snappy acidity...

91Wine Enthusiast

Smoky and powerful in a backbone of full-bodied ripeness and tannin, this is a juicy, succulent wine defined by dark cherry, strawberry and pomegranate, with a thread of persistence earthiness and black tea.

REGION

United States, California, Sonoma, Sonoma Coast

Sonoma Coast AVA runs from San Pablo Bay in the south to Mendocino County in the north. It includes 7,000 vineyard acres and earned AVA status in 1987. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean means it gets double the rainfall of nearby inland appellations and the ocean gives the appellation a relatively cool climate. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir can thrive in these conditions, and there are numerous producers making critically acclaimed Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
