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

  • Amista Winery Gene's Block Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Hot, savory bouillon, black pepper and cinnamon aromas with dark black cherry and blackberry fruit. The palate is expansive, expressive and bold with rich blackberry and black currant fruit, full chocolate and espresso and a finish of rich earth. Read More

  • Pedroncelli Petite Sirah Dry Creek Valley 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Inky, brooding and savory aromas of concentrated blackberry, black currant preserves and rich butter-rum spiked chocolate mousse. In the mouth this sings with ripe fruit flavors of black cherry and black currant, turning earthy and oaken towards the mid palate, and sloping down towards an earthy finish of toast, butter and oak. 90 pts Read More

  • Pedroncelli Dry Rose of Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky, tarry aromas with dark musk and tart mixed berry on the nose. This is a bit green on entry but overdelivers on rich spice and zesty earth, a fruit blend of cranberry, cherry and raspberry and a bold baking spice finish. Read More

  • Auteur Chardonnay Carneros Hyde Vineyard 2008

  • Tank Garage All Or Nothing Red Blend Napa 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Floral notes of crushed violet and allspice with juicy black currant. Full bodied and full fruited on the palate with notes of licorice, dark mixed berry and black cherry, some earth and a medicinal note riding alongside through to the lightly tannic finish. Bold and assertive with a driving herbal and fruit profile. Read More

    Wine review by rckr1951


  • I am not sure if they actually source their grapes for dry wine from the north east coast, maybe they source from California or maybe South Carolina or something because the only wines that I know are for sure grown in Ohio are sweet wines with lots of grape musk. Like Concord and Catawba. I have asked the same question about where they source t... Read More

  • Rodney Strong Rose of Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Pleasant watermelon and cherry aromas are juicy and inviting. This has a fresh, tingling acidity and a zesty spice on the palate. Its playful and clean with excellent fruit notes of cranberry, cherry and strawberry leading up to a bit of an earthy finish. 90 points Read More
