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

  • Provenance Beckstoffer las Amigas Vineyard Merlot 2002

    Snoothrank:

    Again a wine from an estate and, so, less than optimal storage conditions. A TON of upfront red fruit defines the entire taste experience now, Slightly oxidized. There are still very noticeable tannins and acids, here, but they seem to conflict, not harmonize. I am perfectly happy with this wine as an everyday drinker, but I wish for what mi... Read More

  • Solaris Merlot Napa Valley Special Release 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Slightly oxidized. Years of unfortunate storage. On the other hand, there is still some lively red fruit in this one. Read More

  • Quivet Cellars Kenefick Ranch Syrah 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of blackberry on the tip of the tongue. Mellows to tartness and some mineral things mid-palate. An unfortunate sourness on the very rear palate. Read More

  • Sterling Diamond Mountain Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

    Snoothrank:

    Inoffensive, but, obviously, over the hill. Very little of the black fruit that I normally see in CS. Still noticeable tannin. Acid is, pretty much, gone. I bought nine of these for $5/bottle at an estate sale. I have paid a lot more for wines that were not as good as this. I will enjoy my remaining bottles, but not with any special meals. Read More

  • Kumbaya Blend California 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Ruby red coloration with rusty purple hues around the rim when held against light and shows nice legs too! Semi clear transparency which suggests some decanting could be done to this one. Aromas of sweet vanilla, dark cherry, blackberry and chokecherry deepness....perhaps some mild peppery spice and oak dryness. Flavors are very fruit forward... Read More

  • Shafer Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

    Snoothrank:

    Very beautiful, purple in the glass. Typical CS nose of dark fruit. Indeed dark fruit on the tip of the tongue--blackberry, currant, prune--but, also nice minerality. It's been years since I've seen anybody call out pencil lead in their tasting notes, but if this were 2005, that that's the way it would have been described. Tannin and acid ha... Read More
