...gorgeous. Lifted and gracious... Sweet red berries, flowers and a hint of cinnamon are all delineated in the glass, with pretty saline notes that add brightness. All the elements fall into place nicely.

With rose cream, and red cherry in a succulent mid palate, and savoury accents through the finish...offers a sense of concentration and density in an approachable, feminine style.


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.
