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

  • Bedrock Wine Co. Nervo Ranch Heritage 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Subdued nose of prunes, some earthiness. Very nice on the tip of the tongueagain light suggestion of prunes (with no suggestion of sugar). Some steeliness on the back of the palate. This is not particularly complex, but it is just a super, easy-to-drink wine. Read More

  • Neyers Syrah Sonoma Coast Old Lakeville Road 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This wine benefited from sitting in the cellar for awhile. The fruit rose and the large herbal overtones mellowed a little. Blueberries and raspberries on the nose nose, brushy qualities, spice and fresh pepper with a note of chocolate. A well balanced tannic/acid finish leads to a medium finish. Drink now - Paul 89 points. Read More

  • T-Vine Napa Valley Petite Sirah 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Dark and brooding is right! Big nose of blackberry, oak, cloves, earthy tones and Damson plum. Loaded with big fruit, tannins and acidity this is not for the faint of heart and 3-4 yrs cellaring. Decant for now - Paul 90 points. Read More

  • Martin Ray Vineyards & Winery Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Rich, deep black cherry aromas that deliver incredible depth of fruit and are only slightly tempered by floral spice. In the mouth, this is decorated with black cherry and red currant notes, a touch of medicine, and baking spice leading up to the oak and smoky wood spice on the finish. Read More

  • Martin Ray Vineyards & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Intriguing ripe berry aromas with wood spice and a flinty salinity on the nose alongside dark black cherry notes. This is expansive and quite fruity on entry with red fruit notes of ripe cherry, raspberry and a touch of medicine, soft structure and a finish of blueberry and delicate spice. Read More

  • Martin Ray Vineyards & Winery Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Warm, thick fruit forward aromas of baked apple, pear and vanilla caramel with some lemon hiding against the spice. This is a bit thin in the mouth but bursting with acidity, candied lemon drop notes towards the front of the palate, cream and butter towards the back and a warm stone fruit blend of peach and dried apricot welling up at the finish.

  • La Crema Pinot Noir Sonoma County 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Ripe black cherry and spice aromas. Tart cranberry notes on entry with light earth and herbal freshness, notes of raspberry and strawberry coming through the midpalate and a licorice, medicinal note towards the finish with light tannins and more earthiness. Read More
