RATINGS

96Jeb Dunnuck

...savory, umami-driven bouquet of dried red fruits, forest floor, truffle, saddle leather, and dried earth. Opening up beautifully with time in the glass, this beauty is medium-bodied, silky, and elegant on the palate, with fine tannins and a great finish. It’s a beautiful wine that thrills on all accounts.

94The Wine Advocate

...vibrant black cherries and black raspberries with loads of earthy nuances: truffles, tar, black soil and underbrush plus wafts of roses and charcuterie. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a solid structure of ripe, finely grained tannins and seamless freshness supporting the generous fruit, finishing long with a lovely mineral tinge.

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.
