RATINGS

96Jeb Dunnuck

It has a stunning perfume of sweet black raspberries, olives, lavender, ground pepper, and herbes de Provence... A ripe, rounded, sexy vintage for this wine, it has terrific concentration and depth, yet stays seamless and perfectly balanced.

95Vinous / IWC

Super-ripe black cherry, blackberry, plum, chocolate and sweet spice are all pushed forward.

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, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
