At dinner - A big wine, packed with red and black fruit in a medium bodied, rather flannelly package that comes off as a bit thickerthan I might like but the flavors are fresh and balanced, and the texture does make this easy to enjoy. the finish is long and shows some nice spice tones. Very solid. 90pts

A spice bomb made from the fruit of young vines at Hirsch and Keefer Ranch. It had some fresh red fruit but mainly it brought all sorts of spice in large quantities from clove to ginger to orange peel to cinnamon - delicious.

We visited Failla last year and picked up a 1/2 case each of the Sonoma/Keefer Ranch Pinots & Phoenix Ranch Syrah. This is a slight favorite over the Sonoma - immediately drinkable with great cherry & raspberry flavors - smooth finish. Not a classic but very enjoyable - we're stashing some for another year or two.

There's no doubt this is a California Pinot Noir. The fruit is upfront, exotic, nearly kirschwasser in character with anise seed and plump tannic structure. Pair with equally rich fare and you'll be set.

Winemaker's Notes:

The outstanding 2006 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast offers sweet pomegranate, cherry, and currants notes intermixed with spice and earth in a delicate, almost Cotes de Beaune-like style. The color is medium ruby, the wine moderate in body, but with beautiful sweetness and harmony. It should drink nicely for 5-6 years. - WA Cheese Pairings: Goat cheese, VacherinFood Pairings: Grilled Salmon, grilled eggplant
