As nursery owners in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Walt and Joan Flowers had long dreamed of combining their love of wine with their passion for agriculture. They knew they wanted to produce their favorite varietals, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; what they didn't know was that their path would eventually lead them across country to Northern California's rugged Sonoma Coast. After responding to a small classified ad in a national wine publication, that's exactly where they landed. In 1989, after many information-gathering trips to Napa and Sonoma, Walt and Joan purchased 321 acres, including a ridge top, high above the Pacific Ocean on the northern Sonoma Coast. With the same determination they drew on to build their successful nursery business; the Flowers proceeded with the dream of producing their favorite cool-climate varietals in a place they believed uniquely suited to growing them. Today, Flowers Winery produces 15,000 cases of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from its two estate properties, Camp Meeting Ridge and Flowers Ranch, as well as select vineyards in the coolest regions of the Sonoma Coast AVA, which are farmed to Flowers' specifications by their own crews. In addition to direct consumer sales, the wines are sold to fine restaurants and retailers in the US and overseas. Read less

One of the standouts of the tasting. There's a certain unique woody character that is in the nose of some of Flowers' wines that is so unique and special. This wine has a lot of it. It's so enticing. There's tons of awesome sweet fruit on the mouth.

The best Pinot I have had all year. Big, rich, round, and complex but still captures the luscious berry character that Pinot is known for. This is the wine that keeps on giving. Great legs, full bodied, long finish and deep vermilion color set this Pinot apart from any I have tasted state-side. It's a private winery so sales can only be done on their website, or affiliated ones. Do your self a favor and get this wine before it runs out. You will not be disappointed. Drink now or hold till 2011. $60-70$
