93The Wine Advocate

...cranberry, red licorice, rhubarb, rose petal and pomegranate with notions of stone, dried leaves, dusty earth, orange peel and amaro. It's light to medium-bodied with bright red fruits underscored by an earthy undercurrent, softly framed and finishing very long with lip-smacking acidity and pleasant bitters notions.

93Vinous / IWC

...beautifully lifted and precise... Crushed flowers, crushed berries and mint add nuance as this high-toned, perfumed Pinot opens up in the glass...

...aromas of red cherry, cranberry and raspberry...delicious, vibrant and attractively detailed medium weight flavors possess a seductive palate impression that contrasts mildly with the lingering, dusty and ever-so-slightly warm finale...the complexity and notwithstanding the hint of warmth, the balance holds in well too.


United States, California, North Coast, Mendocino County, Yorkville Highlands

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.
