RATINGS

91Wine Spectator

Firm and finely textured, with savory richness to the dried berry and cherry flavors, supported by crisp tannins and acidity. The toasty finish lingers, revealing cooking spice accents.

90Wine Enthusiast

Up-front earthiness invites one into the core of this full-bodied, richly styled wine, tangy in acidity with a lingering freshness and complexity of stems. Cool-climate elements of forest, tea and tannin combine around strawberry and mint.

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.
