Flowers Pn 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby red color. Aromas of wild berries, savory dried herbs, and subtle earthiness lift elegantly from the glass. On the palate, flavors of Bing cherry, rhubarb, and pomegranate are framed by fine-grained tannins, earthy minerality, and bright acidity. This wine has an enduring fresh finish.

As nursery owners in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Walt and Joan Flowers had long dreamed of combining their love of wine with their passion for agriculture. They knew they wanted to produce their favorite varietals, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; what they didn't know was that their path would eventually lead them across country to Northern California's rugged Sonoma Coast. After responding to a small classified ad in a national wine publication, that's exactly where they landed. In 1989, after many information-gathering trips to Napa and Sonoma, Walt and Joan purchased 321 acres, including a ridge top, high above the Pacific Ocean on the northern Sonoma Coast. With the same determination they drew on to build their successful nursery business; the Flowers proceeded with the dream of producing their favorite cool-climate varietals in a place they believed uniquely suited to growing them. Today, Flowers Winery produces 15,000 cases of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from its two estate properties, Camp Meeting Ridge and Flowers Ranch, as well as select vineyards in the coolest regions of the Sonoma Coast AVA, which are farmed to Flowers' specifications by their own crews. In addition to direct consumer sales, the wines are sold to fine restaurants and retailers in the US and overseas. Read less

A model of total elegance and class the 2011 Pinot Noir from Flowers is absolutely gorgeous. Savory herbs crushed flowers licorice salt orange peel mint and plums are all woven together in the glass. Today the 2011 is impeccably crafted and flat-out gorgeous. Although very much a medium-bodied wine I would not at all be surprised to see the 2011 blossom with more time in bottle. This is an impressive effort. Unfortunately the Sonoma Coast was the only 2011 Flowers Pinot I was able to taste but based on this effort 2011 is certainly shaping up well here. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2021. -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Flowers vineyards rise up just two miles from the rugged Pacific Ocean cliffs at elevations of 1,150 to 1,875 feet. Nursery owners in Pennsylvania, Walt and Joan Flowers combined their love of wine with their passion for agriculture.

Bright ruby color with violet hues on the rim. Blackberry and briar patch come forward in the initial aromas and evolve into high-toned cherry and bergamot orange. Flavors of dried black cherries and savory herbs complement the bright acidity and supple tannins which frame a lingering and silky finish.
