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

  • Schug Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma Coast 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Floral nose of wild flowers with some intriguing herbals coming through like tea leaf and grass with some peach and pineapple fruit. This is more about the mouthfeel than the acidity in the mouth, with some good fullness in the mouth and distant notes of grapefruit and gooseberry especially towards the finish. Read More

  • Kendall-Jackson Grand Reserve Merlot 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Soft red fruit aromas of raspberry and sweet cherry with a bit of chalky earth and some floral notes on the nose. Dusty and dry in the mouth, this delivers a rich red fruit palate with a dose of medicine and dark chocolate towards the finish. Good acidity and fresh earthiness towards the finish add some complexity here. Read More

    Very dark purple in the glass. Something of a green viny nose. Lots of black currant/blackberry on the tip of the tongue. Some herbalitybasil, mintthat is, really, quite pleasant. Something of a dusty sensation which I would attribute to tannin. Not distracting, but noticeable. Something of slate or tarry sensation at the rear palate. A v... Read More

  • Frank Family Vineyards Zinfandel Napa Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This is milk chocolate covered strawberries with sugar frosting to a tee. This is truly decadent in the mouth, dark and rich blackberry preserves, spicy cinnamon and clove, chewy tannins and dark chocolate coming through towards the finish. 90 pts Read More

  • Quivet Cellars Mcgah Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly pale yellow color. Quite fruity on the nosepear, banana. Fruitiness is not as obvious on the tongue, but I do get some pear and some tropical hintsagain banana. Some herbal hints mid- to rear palate. Not as acidic as most contemporary California SBs seem to be and, again, thankfully, no overpowering grapefruit flavor. Maybe that fad ... Read More

  • Bedrock Wine Company Dolinsek Ranch Heritage Red Wine 2013

    Snoothrank:

    More blue than red purple color. Lots of black fruit on entryblackberry, black plum that may be a tad overripe, and there may be a suggestion of blueberry. Surprisingly, this wine is not as full-bodied as I might have guessed. It is, in fact, far from full-boded. Very sedate tannins. A touch of bitterness on the rear palate, but that is gon...
