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

  • Anakota Helena Dakota Cabernet Sauvignon 2009


    Tremendous gem from Knights Valley. Deep dark in color and a good mid palate with wonderful floral notes on the nose. This was my first Anakota, and hopefully not my last. It stood up well to some big competiton the likes of Dancing Hare and 100 Acre. Cheers! Read More

  • Hundred Acre Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2006


    A well made wine more in the Classic Bordeaux of France style. structure and balance with a bit too much oak em parting a more European feel to the wine.I live Melka, but prefer his other Napa efforts like Moone Tsai and Vineyard 29. Well made, but not my style. Read More

  • St. Supéry Napa Valley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2009


    This Cab is deep dark and vibrant. It has immediate intense aromas of sweet juicy black cherries and bitter chocolate with a slight peppery slap on the nose. On the palate it explodes with fruits of overripe berries and plum. There is a mild sweetness that lingers with a fullness that never wants to end. This wine is rich and wonderfully mor... Read More

  • Capture Sauvignon Blanc California Tradition 2011


    The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc Les Pionnieres is 100% Sauvignon Blanc and has been aged in stainless steel for five months. Pale gold in color, the aroma is thick and heady at first but that quickly goes away and in comes aromas of honeydew melon, apricot and lemon. On the palate it tickles the tongue a little with zesty citrus fruits of lemon, grap... Read More

  • William Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2012


    A newcomer from Gallo Wines, the William Hill Estates Sauvignon Blanc has a calming light Sea foam green hue. There are instant and startling aromas of citrus fruits and apricot on the nose. Powerfully sharp on the tongue with tastes of ripe red grapefruit, kiwi and cantaloupe. A slight effervescence tingles the tongue with a delightful danc... Read More

    A Lot 18 Seasonal Selection; NV '...blend of several different grapes, mostly red, but with some Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay...' Pretty interesting. Had this after a Chardonnay and found this one bright, but with some very nice oak/cedar notes. This is the description from the Winery which rings true to me '... a delightful, refreshing wine ...
