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

North Coast on Snooth

  • Cline Family Cellars Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Notes of tropical fruit and green apple on the nose with a touch of soft powder and stone. On the palate, lemon and juicy apple and mango, a bit of mineral sea spray and floral notes on the finish. This has a bit of a processed note running throughout that proves a bit hard to shake. Read More

  • Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 2014

    Snoothrank:

    An elegantly structured Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon that shows medium-full body, full flavors of ripe juicy berry medley (cherry, grape, strawberry, raspberry, blueberry), hints of Earthy spice, such as black pepper and licorice root, alongside hints of alcohol warmth. Aromas of course precede the flavors and contain much the same in terms of war... Read More

  • Acorn Axiom Syrah Alegria Vineyards Russian River Valley 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Spicy dark berry and bramble fruit aromas with moist earth and something a bit oaty in the glass. Full, rich palate of dark fruit and textured tannins with a light smoke and dark chocolate, a drying finish of light licorice and sticky resinous berry spice. Read More

  • Carlisle Montafi Ranch Russian River Zinfandel 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly complex Zinfandel. Lots of opening fruitsome berry but, also stone fruit. Then the old Zinfandel bramble from the 1980slike sticks and stems. This provides a bitter sensation to contrast with the sweetness of the opening fruit. Nice stiff tannin and sturdy acid. Im one who is eager to pop the cork on my wines, and while I am, in fact...

  • Smith-Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of woodsiness in the noseI get that, a lot, from Spring Mountain fruit. Nicely settled black cassis fruit. Towards the back of the palate there are certainly the suggestions of leather or tobacco. A decade, or so, of bottle age has certainly calmed down the tannins, but this wine is no wimp. It will stand up to the most robust meal. Wi... Read More
