North Coast Wine

 

The North Coast AVA is a region that spans eight counties and dozens of prestigious subregions within California. The Pacific Ocean creates cooling air and fog conditions that benefit quality grapegrowing. Most of the wines produced in the area use their own subregion on the label, so wines labeled North Coast are often ones made with a blend of grapes from different parts of the region.
 
The North Coast is further subdivided into the following regions:
Humboldt County
Lake County
Marin County
Mendocino County
Napa County
Sonoma County
Solano County
Trinity County

  • Rodney Strong Vineyards Pinot Noir Rose Russian River Valley 2017

    Snoothrank:

    Warm spice and cherry aromas with a touch of watermelon and strawberry. Nicely fruity on the palate, smooth and generous with pleasant spice and notes of cherry and strawberry, finishing clean and light with a flaky pastry creaminess. Easy to like.. Read More

  • Myriad Cellars Beckstoffer Georges III Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Very attractive dark purple in the glass. Subdued nose of blue/black fruit. Nice hit of dried fruitblueberry, pruneon entry. Very tame tannins. Not the most mouth-filling CS. Nice acid makes the wine quite refreshing. Another case, though, where the whole seems greater than the sum of the parts. Read More

  • Church & Mills Chardonnay 2016

    Snoothrank:

    This was about as floral on the nose as they come. Almost fake. However, it was both floral and crisp. Screw top and good price point. Read More

  • Tank Garage All Or Nothing Red Blend Napa 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Floral notes of crushed violet and allspice with juicy black currant. Full bodied and full fruited on the palate with notes of licorice, dark mixed berry and black cherry, some earth and a medicinal note riding alongside through to the lightly tannic finish. Bold and assertive with a driving herbal and fruit profile. Read More
