for this region?

Sonoma Mountain is a subregion of Sonoma Valley in California. The region has different microclimates, with cooler Pacific Ocean air circulating through the canyons and consistently warm areas that are more exposed. Most vineyards are planted high above sea level, out of the way of fog. Depending on location, grapes produced vary from cool-climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, to Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon to robust Cabernet and Zinfandel. 

The region gained AVA status in 1985, mainly due to the efforts of Laurel Glen Winery’s Patrick Campbell and vintner David Steiner. ~Amanda Schuster

  • We made it home safe and sound with a few less dollars in our bank account but we came back with some mighty nice jewels that we discovered along the way.Sunday was our Napa day.  Thanks to another great rec from OT, we found our way to Apsara in Calistoga.  We met with winemaker Robin Akhurst, what a great guy.  A Scot from south of Edinburgh, ...

  • I think even you, Fox, are thinking too much within CA. There are more-than-well-drinkable cab blends for less than $25, just not that many from CA or even WA.Go here for five pages of cab blends between $10 and $25 from as good an online vendor as you are likely to find (I prefer them *greatly* to Total): K&L Wines. I'll cull through a few of t... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    I believe we opened this one too early, yet the wine was still dynamic and well balanced. This particular vintage was from the year my Wife and I met, so it was fitting to share the magnificence of the wine's beauty. We will definitely acquire another bottle. Read More

    Wine review by Mr Dolce


  • This might be a stretch, but when you're retired, almost everything goes.  I think it would be grand for folks to come up with an above average wine for Wednesdays, which some of us - those still working for a living - call 'hump day'.  Something beyond an everyday Weekday Wine, yet still below the threshold of a truly Weekend Wine.  Since tomor...
