Very fruit laden, powerful cherry and raspberry yet still maintains a certain complexity. Slightly sharp in the finish, this is not a bad Pinot Noir at all but not an amazing one either.

Fruits reminiscient of Russian River Valley, full bodied Pinot with a bright acidity that is sure to mellow out in the next two years. Potential for ageability.

Most of the fruit for this cooler climate Pinot Noir comes from Sonoma County. The brilliant berry nose coupled with a touch of sweet oak on the finish is a nice match with lighter fare such as grilled fish and chicken.

This is an astonishing value, especially from such a prestigious appellation. Has a silky texture and lush but dry flavors of cherries, raspberries, herbs, mushrooms, coffee and clove. Try with pork tenderloin with plum sauce. With more than 30,000 cases produced, this should be easy to find.

Fruity and supple, this young, jammy wine is easy to drink. It has rich, juicy flavors of newly crushed berries and a slight grassiness that freshens it. So rich it seems almost sweet, but it's dry, with soft tannins.

A bit divisive among our panelists, with one finding it rather light and lacking in intensity, while others found virtue in its understated yet varietally correct nature. Cola and cherry flavors finish clean and fresh.

Well-balanced for the vintage, with tasty plum, black cherry, anise and cola flavors that are focused.

A terrific wine at a giveaway price, this coastal bottling shows a rich, complex texture and is very dry. The flavors unfold one by one on the palate: cherries, cocoa, cola, plums, blackberries and spices are highlighted by a burst of crisp acids.

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Sonoma County Pinot Noir is rich and balanced with red fruit flavors of cherry, blackberry and plum. Its layers unfold to reveal an earthy character and delightful herbal notes, complimented by soft vanilla and a smooth, silky finish. The grapes were destemmed and cold soaked prior to fermentation. During fermentation the enhanced contact between the skins and juice maximizes the red fruit flavors of this varietal. This wine completed malolactic fermentation.
