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

  • Rockpile Winery Zinfandel Rockpile Jack's Cabin 2011

    Snoothrank:

    More of a fruity nose than Im used to for a Zinfandel. On the tongue, though, the fruit is ameliorated. I do get a bit of blueberry and some plum, but this is more subtle than blatant. Some leather that I would, normally associate with Cabernet Sauvignon on the rear palate. Not terribly full-bodied. Fairly light on tannin. Read More

  • Turning Leaf Vineyards Merlot California 2010

    Snoothrank:

    I got this as a wine rack filler and only paid $3.50+tax. For that price, it serves it's purpose. Smooth to someone with deeper pallet. Read More

  • Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Aveta 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Had this with dinner at Savoy last evening. I don't drink Sauvignon Blancs very often, but for this dinner, asked the Waitperson to choose a glass of wine or Bourbon for each of 3 courses. Pleasantly surprised with this one, paired with a Salad Special with Butter Lettuce, Bacon, & Gorgonzola. Very well balanced, smooth, and more body than I exp... Read More

  • Hess Allomi Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly oaky nose. Candy sweet on introductionblackberry, big time. Some dark plum hints. Some earthiness. Very sedate tannin, although it does pop up on the rear palate. Quite a short finish. The candied fruit on entry discourages me from going back for more of this one. Read More

  • Limerick Lane Hail Mary 2012

    Snoothrank:

    From the back label: 94% Syrah/6% Grenache. Dark murky purple in the glass. Very berry nose. Very easy on the tongue and under the palate. Gentle introduction of black raspberry. Some herbalness. Sufficient acidnoticeable, but complementary to the fruit, not dominating. Very gentle on the tannin. Certainly not a powerhouse wine, but t... Read More

  • Black Kite Gap's Crown Vineyard Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Notes of lychee and elderflower with some phenolics and green apple on the nose. This is immediately fruity on entry and showing peach and apricot notes with a warm spice of ginger and vanilla, a quick green note of lemongrass and a tart lemon finish that's nicely creamy. Read More
