...offers a deeper, more savory, foresty character as well as plenty of black raspberry fruits, allspice, dried flowers, cedar, and loamy earth.

95The Wine Advocate

Medium-bodied with firm, grainy tannins and a lively line of acid framing the intense red berry and spicy layers, it finishes on a lingering mineral note.

94Vinous / IWC

...distinctive inner sweetness and raciness. Deep and creamy through the middle and into the finish...

94James Suckling

Aromas of bergamot, pomegranate and ripe dark-fleshed stone fruits, plenty of cherries, as well as a sappy edge.


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.
