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

  • J Vineyards Brut Rose Russian River Valley NV

    Snoothrank:

    Warm cherry and strawberry aromas, smooth and balanced with floral notes. Zesty and tart citrus notes on the palate with tangerine, lemon and grapefruit notes with fresh strawberries and cream, very warm with baking spices and bold acidity with a bit of earthiness coming through towards the finish, framed with cherry and a faint tannin layering ...

  • Mumm Napa Brut Prestige NV

    Snoothrank:

    Classic aromas of golden pear, Granny Smith apple and hearty country toast with a hint of banana on the nose. Elegant and refined on the palate with tart tangerine pith and pink grapefruit notes, a puckering citrusy bright mid palate and a finish of oak and toasted hazelnut. 92 pts Read More

  • Myriad Syrah Sangiacomo Vineyard Petaluma Gap 2014

    Snoothrank:

    This wine opens with a terrific hit of tart stone fruitplum. Certainly, a full-bodied wine. However, moderate, at the maximum, on the tannin which is balanced by moderate, at the maximum, acid. I find this a fun-to-drink wine that doesnt require a ton of oenological esoterica to enjoy. Read More

  • Schug Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2015

    Snoothrank:

    ABV 13.8% Rather light on the nose but with hints of cherry. Ruby red in color. Body is medium light. First impression is sour cherry that becomes quite tart and finishes with a hint of dark cherry and some notable dry tannins. Read More

  • Buoncristiani Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Good opening of dark fruit-cassis, blueberry--on entry. Then, whoa, what a tannic monster. Then leathery, tobacco bitterness. I actually think this wine has tremendous potential. There is sufficient acid to suggest that aging will tame the tannin. However, this process will take years of patience. Read More

  • Beringer Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Pretty much, a typical, low-dollar Pinot. Plenty of upfront red cherry cola fruit, fairly light-bodied, inoffensive. Certainly, not sophisticated or complex. Read More

  • Robert Mondavi Merlot Napa Valley 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Blackberry aromas with rich spice and a leathery, oaky vanilla note. Juicy black cherry and blackberry flavors on the palate with a creamy texture on entry that evolves into strong tannins, dusty earth and creamy vanilla notes towards the tart finish. Read More

  • St. Francis Old Vines Zinfandel 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Interesting. Both black and red berry fruit--almost pie-filling type of "sweetness." Very light on the tannin and acid. All that sounds damning, but for less than $20, this is a perfectly functional wine. Read More
