92Wine Enthusiast

This is forward and sweet in raspberry and cherry jams. However, it's not a simple fruit bomb. With a mushroomy, gamy earthiness and refined tannins, it shows true complexity and structure.

91Vinous / IWC

Powerful blackberry and cherry-cola aromas, with notes of cracked pepper, lavender and musky earth adding complexity. Dense and powerful but lively on the palate, offering gently sweet dark berry flavors lifted by a spicy element. The cola note comes back on the finish, which features fine-grained tannins and a late jolt of spicecake.


United States, California, North Coast, Mendocino County, Anderson Valley

Mendocino AVA was established in 1984 and amended in 1989. It includes numerous sub-appellations. Mendocino AVA is entirely within Mendocino County, and the AVA is known for its Mediterranean climate. Vintners successfully grow Carignan, Charbono, Grenache, Zinfandel, Petit Sirah and Syrah. In cooler parts of the region Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are also grown. Mendocino County is home to nearly 600 vineyards, and many have been certified organic for decades, thanks to the region’s famous “green and sustainable” approach to agriculture and nearly everything else. Mendocino was named for 16th century explorers, a pair of brothers whose last name was Mendoza. Winemaking, however, didn’t start until the 19th century when some would-be gold miners decided it was more profitable to make wine than to pan for gold. Italian immigrants in the late 19th century continued to establish winemaking ventures.


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.
