93James Suckling

This offers red cherries, sous bois and sappy, earthy freshness. The palate heads more towards blue fruit with a smooth band of fine pinot tannin and beautifully preserved acidity, holding a long, mouthwatering finish.

92The Wine Advocate

...perfumed nose of fir, damp earth, black cherries, lavender, oolong tea leaves, dusty character and red berry sparks—savory and earthy. The palate is light to medium-bodied, with concentrated, dark, savory fruits framed by sturdy tannins and great freshness to lift the long, layered finish.

92Jeb Dunnuck

...lots of mulberry and riper cherry fruits as well as sappy herbs, tea, and floral notes...medium-bodied, has a touch more ripeness in its fruit as well as bright underlying acidity and firm tannins...

91Wine Spectator

Pure and precise, featuring notes of underbrush that frame the dried red fruit and berry flavors. Minerally midpalate, with cedar and spice accents on the fresh 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.
