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

  • Kobalt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2010


    Over the past 20 years I have tried 400 to 500 bottles of red always wondering - what's all the hubbub about? I was becoming disappointed until I ran across 05 Kobalt. It opened a new door. I finally felt I was getting my money's worth. Have been through 11 cases of 05 and 06 with friends and family- this is it. We all agree - for the money -... Read More

  • Ridge Lytton Springs California Dry Creek Valley 2010


    Predominantly Zinfandel wine from Ridge. Excellent wine! Fruit forward and jammy on the front with lots of pepper and zinfandel character showing through on the backend. Leather and smoke throughout. Long delicious finish. Read More
