RATINGS

95Jeb Dunnuck

...Gevrey-like nose of mulled red and black plums, Asian spices, scorched earth, and earthy forest floor give way to a rich, medium to full-bodied Pinot Noir that has terrific balance, plenty of acidity and tannins, and a great finish. It has lots of upfront fruit yet has a firm underbelly and excellent structure...

93Vinous / IWC

...dense, potent wine. Sweet dark cherry, plum, new leather, spice, chocolate, leather and earthiness all open with a bit of coaxing. This is a pretty rich style, with plenty of oak influence, and a ton of impact. There is a lot to like here.

91The Wine Advocate

...opens with aromas of tar before segueing to aniseed, amaro, tea leaves and blackberries. The medium-bodied palate is broody and earthy with a firm, juicy frame and spicy finish.

REGION

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.

TYPE

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.
