95+ The Wine Advocate

A stunning nose of red roses, violets and orange zest with a core of cranberries, red currants and Bing cherries, plus earthy/underbrush accents. Medium-bodied, the palate is full-on intense with perfumed red berry and earthy flavor

95Vinous / IWC

Dark red cherry, plum, violet, licorice and leather build as this creamy, ample Pinot shows off its distinctive voice. The 24% whole clusters perk up the flavors, but they are also pretty much buried by the sheer luxuriousness of the fruit.

94James Suckling

Aromas of blackberries, lightly grilled meat and dried strawberries. Full-bodied, very structured and tannic with zesty acidity that holds it all down.


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.
