95Vinous / IWC

A super-appealing interplay of juicy dark red cherry and raspberry flavor, with striking inner sweetness and lifted aromatics. Dense, pliant and voluptuous, the 2014 is exceptionally polished.

Morlet’s top selection is the 2014 Pinot Noir Joli Coeur. This has the darkest fruits, crisp acids, more minerality, structure and tannin with a more muscular, backward feel.


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.
