92Robert M. Parker Jr.

It seems to have the greatest concentration, the broadest, most savory mouthfeel, the most complexity, and the juiciest, purest strawberry, black cherry and sassafras-like fruit character.

92Wine Spectator

Floral, anise and licorice notes are evident, leading to a pleasant loamy earth aftertaste. The finish sails on, gaining suppleness and depth.

92Vinous / IWC

Red berries, flowers and mint are given an extra dimension of lift from the inclusion of 50% whole clusters. Fine, silky tannins wrap around the supple, highly expressive finish.


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.


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.
