98+ Jeb Dunnuck

...raspberries, black cherries, violets, game, and exotic spice notes...wonderfully complex, nuanced 2018 that has flawless balance, a beautiful spine of acidity, and a great finish.

97-99The Wine Advocate

Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals loads of mineral accents intertwined with the red and black berry flavors, framed by plush tannins and finishing with amazing length and vivacity.

95Vinous / IWC

...dense, explosive wine. Inky dark fruit, leather, licorice and mint all flesh out as this dramatic, full throttle Pinot shows off its personality.

94James Suckling

Aromas of blueberries, dried cherries, violets, licorice and vanilla. It’s full-bodied with creamy, powdery tannins. Excellent depth with a rich, spiced 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.
