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

  • MJET - Here's a list of wines that are currently out there (out of 1000's) from just one place.  All of are age worthy, most drink well early, some drink better after a year or but all sit well for anywhere from 7-8 to 15-20.

  • Kenwood Jack London Vineyard Merlot Sonoma Mountain 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Nicely herbal notes of basil and eucalyptus with dusty earth aromas and ripe raspberry and cherry. Medium bodied and zesty on the palate, this has a pleasant ripe cherry and raspberry character throughout, carrying through the herbal notes from the nose to the palate and rounding them out with excellent balance and a touch of cream and vanilla. ...

  • In 2003 Mrs. EMark had some sort of event at the CIA, and she brought Mr. Emark along.  What to do in Napa Valley while the wage earner is attending seminars all day?  I know.  I'll go wine tasting.So, the lady at the B&B recommends a couple wineries to drop by and fixes me up with an appointment at Pride. I had a lot of fun, that day, but I am ... Read More
