External Reviews for Adobe Road Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
This wine has the best of both California and Burgundy. Aromas of dark earth, forest, dark cherries and unsweetened cocoa lead to a lush round palate of cranberry, raspberry and blackberry. This wine is ripe and flavorful yet elegantly balanced with refreshing acidity and an incredibly long finish filled with deep, captivating flavors.
About This Wine: An exciting balance of fresh, crushed, ripe blackberry fruit with a slight hint of white pepper or medley of peppercorns greet your palate. Layers of black cherry and vanilla dominate the glass in a long finish. Try with grilled plank salmon, herb encrusted ahi tuna steaks or grilled lamb.<br/><br/> About The Winery: Adobe Road is a small, family-owned winery located in Petaluma. We specialize in flavorful, distinctive wines. Each of our vintages is handcrafted with fine attention to detail, for a unique taste and experience. Our wines are created in small lots, allowing precise quality control to ensure that every bottle is just the way our wine artisans intended. Traditionally, Adobe Road has produced rich red wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel, but 2006 brings a lighter Sauvignon Blanc to our tasting room.<br/><br/> Adobe Road Winery is owned by renowned sports car racer and entrepreneur Kevin Buckler and his wife, Debra. Adobe Road Winery produces award winning Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Petite Sirah exclusively from Sonoma County sources. The tasting room is located in Petaluma, California. In 1995 Kevin founded The Racer’s Group (TRG) and grew it into an internationally prominent manufacturer and distributor of performance Porsche parts, while simultaneously building a career as a successful endurance sportscar racer and team owner. Kevin’s accomplishments as a driver include class wins at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona (2002) and the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans (2002), an overall win at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona (2003), and the title of Porsche World Cup Champion in 2002. As a team owner, Kevin has directed the growth of The Racer’s Group into an internationally-acclaimed racing team.<br/><br/> With friends, the Bucklers started making “garage wine”, which, after prodding from enthusiastic friends started commercially bottling under the Adobe Road label in 1999. Through Kevin’s good connections, he has acquired grapes from some very prestigious vineyards, which he handcrafts into extremely limited-production wines. The awards have followed, with the Adobe Road 2001 Zinfandel winning a Silver medal in the prestigious Orange County Fair Wine Competition. In March of 2005, Adobe Road brought home the gold, with the 2002 Pinot Noir winning a Gold Medal – Best of Class; the 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon placing Silver and the 2002 Zinfandel receiving Bronze at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. With the goal of producing exceptional wines by hand-crafting small lots of red varietals exclusively from Sonoma County, the Bucklers have dedicated themselves to seeing their vision through to reality, and the results are paying off.<br/><br/> Technical Analysis: <strong>Appellation:</strong> Sonoma Coast<br/><br/> <strong>Winemaking:</strong> “Open Top” fermented with 25% whole cluster and natural yeast.<br/><br/> <strong>Barrel Aging:</strong> French Oak<br/><br/> <strong>Release:</strong> August 2010<br/><br/> <strong>Bottled:</strong> May 2009<br/><br/> <strong>Production:</strong> 700 cases<br/><br/> <strong>Analysis:</strong> Alcohol 14.1%<br/><br/>
