User Reviews for Flowers Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Sea View Ridge

Winemaker's Notes:

Fruit was rigorously hand sorted and fully destemmed with no crushing. Moderate cold soaks (4-5 days), warm fermentations (85-90° F), and minimal punch downs (twice a day or less) were done this year in order to adapt to what nature gave us. Total skin contact ranged from 11-18 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. Mostly native yeast and ML with only small lots conducted using cultured burgundy isolates.

Tasting Notes:

Intense aromas of black cherry, violet, and red fruits are at the core of this wine. The terroir of this rugged seaside vineyard is evident; unfolding in the glass with distinct layers of leather and anise. In the mouth flavors of raspberry, black cherry, and subtle herbal notes are present along with soft tannins and crisp acidity. The finish is textured and delicate with remarkable balance. Cellar for 1 - 5 years. Decant if you wish.
