RATINGS

95Wine Enthusiast

From this perennially impressive site is this stunning vineyard-designate, earthy in a wealthy array of cola, clove, nutmeg and orange peel. Soft, succulent and layered, it dazzles in fresh, focused black cherry and tart shocks of pomegranate. Black tea finishes things off within a balanced body of full flavor and structured complexity.

94Wine Spectator

Contoured and rich-tasting, with concentrated dark cherry, raspberry and wild plum flavors, backed by fresh acidity. Finishes with a creamy texture and notes of dark chocolate and Asian spice. Very svelte, plush and powerful.

92The Wine Advocate

...gives up cinnamon toast, pipe tobacco, pencil shavings, moss-covered bark and mushrooms with a core of blackberries, redcurrant and cranberries. Medium-bodied, it's earthy but countered by bright berry flavors, with a grainy frame and juicy acidity lifting the finish...

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.
