Widely considered to be one of the finest appellations anywhere in the world for growing Pinot Noir, the Sonoma Coast is home to heavy hitters such as La Crema, Flowers, Pahlmeyer and Paul Hobbs. Tucked along the coastal edge of Sonoma County through the mouth of the Russian River Valley, and extending to the Carneros border of Napa, the cooling influences of the Pacific Ocean create richly flavored Pinot Noir with excellent acidity and wonderful balance. Beautiful and inviting aromas of red cherry, strawberry, and black tea, leads to a core of juicy fruit flavors where a touch of spice adds depth and complexity. The hallmark Sonoma Coast structure is balanced by a full-bodied palate and bright acidity. Give this wine 30 minutes to breathe out of the bottle, and you'll agree this is our best Special Reserve Block Pinot Noir!
"Amazingly rich and riveting with intense flavors of boysenberry, raspberry, wild berry and plum. Supple and concentrated joined by a firm minerality on a lingering finish." The Wine Buyer, 96 Points
