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

  • Parducci True Grit Chardonnay Reserve Mendocino 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Vanilla and coconut aromas with a touch of green apple and ripe green melon on the nose. In the mouth this is fairly soft and smooth textured, creamy and buttery with notes of apple and pear, a bit of fresh green herb and spice towards the warm finish. Read More

  • Stags' Leap Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Gentle on entry. Very light flavors of cassis, blueberry on the tip of the tongue. Some earthiness. Sturdy tannins and acid. I suppose that aging will not hurt this wine, but I really dont see any reason to not enjoy this wine now. Read More

  • Cabot Zinfandel Tributary 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Something of a phenolic nose. Lots of red fruit on entrystrawberry, plumand I should add tart fruit. Some tingling around the edges of the tongueanother indication of acid. An unfortunate harshness at the back of the palate. Its not clear to me whether this is from acid or alcohol. Noticeable, but not abusive tannin. For some reason or oth... Read More

I bought this bottle at an Italian deli a couple weeks ago. It has probably been laying on the shelf there for 5 or 6 years. So, it is entirely possible that the compromised storage has forced t...

  • Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Beautiful nose of wild berries, licorice, and crushed rose petals. Wonderfully rich & ripe with flavors that dont overwhelm. Full-bodied, but balanced and delicious. With layered flavors of blackberries, ripe black cherries and blueberries, some plum and with the slightest touch of smoky pepper and creamy oak, creating balance with notes of acid... Read More

  • Keenan Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Very beautiful dark plum color. Nose of dark fruit, earthiness. Terrific on the tongue. Nice suggestion of dried fruit on the tip of the tonguecassis, blueberry, and maybe, plum. Tannin does not hit until mid-palate. This wine is so easy to drink. It is very approachable now. While there is still tannin there, Im not sure there is enough ... Read More
