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 Symmetry Red Meritage Alexander Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Black cherry and cherry cola aromas with floral violets and fresh baking spice. Dark, brooding and richly spiced on the palate, smoky and earthy on entry with faint heat and blackberry, black currant and black cherry fruit, concentrated fruit and a finish of earth and leather. A bold wine with plenty of potential to develop. Read More

  • Flora Springs Family Select Chardonnay 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Lemon cream and butterscotch aromas with gentle floral notes and baking spice. Smooth and velvety on entry with vanilla and brioche notes to start, developing more towards citrus and apple fruit on the palate and releasing a refreshing zesty lemon acidity on the finish. Read More

  • Barnett Vineyards Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyard 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Easy to detect oak-induced butter on the nose. However, on the tongue, worries of too much oak subside. Peach and kiwi flavors emerge. A slight suggestion of caramel. Then a bit of lemony acid. Generally, the kind of Chardonnay I enjoy. I agree that this is, certainly, not a long ager, but it is, currently, nowhere near a downward slope. Read More

  • Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Signature Series 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Very beautiful, dark ruby color. Dark fruity nose. Quintessential Napa Valley cassis on the tongue. Then I get the rustic things that suggest leather or dustiness. Still some very big tannins. That and associated acid makes me feel that this wine is still on an upward slope. So, while I am enjoying it, tonight, anybody who has it in their... Read More
