RATINGS

93Jeb Dunnuck

...a rich, ripe, sexy style...shows elegance and purity as well as complexity. Lots of black raspberry and mulberry fruit emerge from this medium to full-bodied effort, which has plenty of bouquet garni and spice-laced aromatics, ripe, soft tannins, and a great finish. It brings lots of fruit in a balanced, textured, incredibly satisfying package.

92Wine Spectator

A woodsy aroma leads to well-spiced flavors of chocolate brioche and dark plum tart, ending with concentrated toastiness on the long, juicy finish.

92Wine Enthusiast

Juicy, lush and posh in style...well-integrated in firm tannin and toasted oak, succulently rich and rewarding in red berry and cherry. Dried herb, forest and a thread of underlying acidity keep it interesting.

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.
