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

I overheard David Hirsch say, "the symphony is playing" on this one. Very burgundian. Smokey fruit and brambles on the nose with candle wax dripped in. The finish is incredibly dynamic and just keeps going forever.

Mature, showing supple, elegant and spicy sour cherry and wild berry flavors that are delicate and vibrant, with lively acidity. Ends with a mix of cedar and beef notes. Drink now. 2,080 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2001 Kistler Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard 750ml

An opaque purple color is followed by gorgeous aromas of white flowers, minerals, black raspberries, cherries, and toast. It boasts layers of flavor, astonishing purity as well as fruit intensity, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. This majestic Pinot Noir can easily compete with the most profound French Burgundies.
