97Wine Enthusiast

...exotic, feral and coastal-influenced expression of the grape that will linger on the palate and mind for awhile. High-toned and rocky in mineral, it offers a wealth of layered blue fruit, focused and structured in laser-like acidity and hits of Asian spice.

96Jeb Dunnuck

...offers a slightly darker, earthier style with beautiful red currants, crushed strawberry, earth, forest floor, and salty minerality. It's rounded, supple, has ripe tannins, terrific mid-palate depth, and a great finish.

95+ Vinous / IWC

Black cherry, plum, lavender, mint, licorice and cloves all meld together in a mysterious, sepia-toned Pinot...

95James Suckling

This is really beautiful with dried-raspberry and strawberry character on the nose and palate. Medium-bodied, tannic and powerful with a chewy texture and a long, flavorful finish.

94+ The Wine Advocate

...very pretty notes of roses, tangerine peel, potpourri and perfumed earth over a core of ripe black cherries and berries with warm blueberry hints. Medium-bodied and silky textured with a great array of flavors opening in the mouth—warm cinnamon, clove, flowers—it has soft, grainy tannins and a long, juicy finish.


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.
