93The Wine Advocate

...compelling cranberry, pomegranate and rhubarb pie notes with nuances of wild thyme, forest floor, ceps and camphor. Medium to full-bodied, it is built like a brick house with a solid foundation of firm, fine-grained tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and earthy.

92Vinous / IWC

Sweet red cherry, tobacco, spice and cedar all flesh out in the glass...the wine's textural softness and silkiness that stand out most.

92Jeb Dunnuck

...solid mix of red and black fruits as well as classic underbrush, dried earth, and floral/spicy aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, silky and elegant...

91Wine Spectator

Strikes a nice balance between the tight structure, firm tannins and vibrant, earth-laced plum and cherry flavors, ending long and clean.

91Wine Enthusiast

Abundant fruit flavors that are so ripe they're almost sweet dominate this full-bodied, mouth-filling and seemingly soft-textured wine...generous with plummy cherry-candy notes and has soft tannins for a pillowy finish.


United States, California, North Coast, Mendocino County, Mendocino Ridge

Mendocino AVA was established in 1984 and amended in 1989. It includes numerous sub-appellations. Mendocino AVA is entirely within Mendocino County, and the AVA is known for its Mediterranean climate. Vintners successfully grow Carignan, Charbono, Grenache, Zinfandel, Petit Sirah and Syrah. In cooler parts of the region Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are also grown. Mendocino County is home to nearly 600 vineyards, and many have been certified organic for decades, thanks to the region’s famous “green and sustainable” approach to agriculture and nearly everything else. Mendocino was named for 16th century explorers, a pair of brothers whose last name was Mendoza. Winemaking, however, didn’t start until the 19th century when some would-be gold miners decided it was more profitable to make wine than to pan for gold. Italian immigrants in the late 19th century continued to establish winemaking ventures.


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.
