95Wine Enthusiast

...deliciously robust in white pepper and cardamom, with traces of black tea throughout. Substantial opulence and weight belie its underlying elegance and complexity, textured like a velvety plum.

92The Wine Advocate

...iron and graphite scents segueing to tea leaves, woodsmoke, dried herbs and red and black berry fruit. Medium-bodied, the palate is grainy, fresh and intense, with earth-laced fruits and a long, bitters-laced finish.

92Wine Spectator

Plush and creamy, with notes of underbrush to the vibrant cherry and berry flavors, followed by accents of white pepper and slate on the crunchy 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.
