...rose petal aroma before evolving slowly to reveal dense, delicate layers of black tea, orange peel and allspice. The savory tones lead to a midpalate that bursts of rich berries, with soft, supple tannins framing it all.

94Wine Spectator

Refined and elegant, featuring crunchy acidity behind the lively, mineral-infused flavors of spice and crushed red fruit. Medium-grained tannins show on the finish, with hints of pepper and slate, and a dollop of citrusy intensity.

94Vinous / IWC

...super-expressive and inviting. The flavors are dark, juicy and wonderfully seductive. Ripe plum, black cherry, mint, spice and cola are pushed forward in this succulent, open-knit Russian River Pinot...well-balanced and harmonious.

93The Wine Advocate

...soft scents of rose petals, strawberries and rhubarb with an undercurrent of dusty earth, charcuterie and citrus peel. Medium-bodied, it offers juicy, perfumed red berry fruit with a very finely grained frame, addicting freshness and a long, spicy finish. Lovely!

92Jeb Dunnuck

...notes of spiced dark fruits, brambly herbs, sassafras, and forest floor. Medium-bodied and elegant on the palate, it drops off slightly on the 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.
