Flowers Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2008
Fruit was rigorously hand sorted and fully destemmed with no crushing. Moderate cold soaks (4-5 days), warm fermentations (75-80° F), and minimal punchdowns (twice a day or less) were done this year in order to adapt to what nature gave us. Total skin contact ranged from 14-22 days with all fermentations being carefully basket pressed and put to barrel on full fermentation lees for ML. Racking was minimal with only one assemblage being done in the spring to allow the blend to "marry" in barrel for a few months before bottling. Mostly native yeast and ML with only small lots conducted using cultured burgundy isolates.
Gentle semi-acidic Pinot, a little bit of butter on the aroma, which also has some detectable oak. Pretty easy drinking wine w/ a nice coating texture, would love to have this w/ a filet or pork tenderloin. Drinks well by itself.
Smooth and very easy to drink. Hint of berries. Would love to try with food but am happy enjoying it on its own.
A very creamy Pinot that has a hint of cherry and Oak. I really liked the wine. Very drinkable...I poured a glass and then went back for a second....it was all gone.

A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2008 Flowers Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 750ml
Medium-light garnet color. Cherry compote aromas accentuated by Fennel spice and violet. Flavors evocative of roasted meats, olives and citrus add to the complexity. Acidity is balanced with supple tannins to produce a smooth, uplifting finish. Enjoy now or cellar up to 3 years. - Winery
