A fabulous bouquet of blueberries, kirsch, spice box, incense and forest floor all flow to a medium-bodied Pinot Noir...tons of intensity yet still plays beautifully in the elegant, vibrant, classical style of the estate. It shows more floral notes with time in the glass...attractive, seamless effort...

Rose petal, sweet red berry, wild flowers and blood orange give the wine striking presence and nuance. Gracious and yet deep...


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.
