95James Suckling

A very complex wine on the nose with flowers, earth and spiced blue and red cherries on offer, as well as sappy notes. The palate has plenty of up-front fruit and such intense, deeply layered tannins that carry red-cherry flavors so long and so deep. Long and impressive.

95Wine Enthusiast

Fresh acidity pierces through spicy tea and clove seasoned around a light, bright and exotic core of orange peel, rhubarb and brambly blackberry and cherry. The finish is lengthy and indelibly memorable.

93The Wine Advocate

…scented of mushroom, tree bark, white pepper and dried sage with a core of wild blackberries and Bing cherries plus nuances of gunflint, peppered meats and garrigue... Medium-bodied, it offers intense, savory-laced fruits with a gentle, grainy frame and fantastic freshness, finishing long and nuanced.

91Wine Spectator

Broad-textured, with plenty of creamy notes to the ebullient flavors of cherry tart, roasted fig and plum, showing dried beef accents. The ripe, spicy finish offers dried sage and smoke details.


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.
