A bit reticent on the nose yet an interesting blend of sweat,dried leather, spicy herbs and gently strawberry fruits. In the mouth this is simple yet bright and fresh with a nice meaty note to the cherry fruit and a nice gentle yet lengthy finish. A picnic styled Pinot yet with with a touch of complexity finishing with hints of cinnamon and bubble gum. Drink 20019-2011 89pts

    The nose has a pronounced pear-vanilla note but this does not follow thru to the flavors of sweet cherry while mouth-feel offers chewy tannins and light acidity. At $20 I'll pass.

    Pale cherry fruit and a touch of poop on the nose along with some mineral rich soil. Tangy, spicy and a touch bitter with decent acidity, but no fruit left.

    I really wanted to like this. But, I found it to be too light, too watery, and very green. I tasted an off-putting and not subtle bell pepper flavor that seemed to overpower the hints of red fruit and oak.

    Must decant. The first glass straight out of the bottle had a really nasty funk on the nose. After decanting, the funk decreases and the strawberries come out. On the palette, silky, light, surprisingly sweet off the bat; followed by sour cherries/cranberries. For this flavor profile at this price, I'd opt for the 2009 Marcel Lapierre Morgon beaujolais. Different varietal, but the Morgon is oh so much better.

    Lighter than the Schug Carneros, the Sonoma Pinot is nevertheless full of flavor, loaded with cherry and raspberry fruit, with a hint of oak and spice. Perfectly pleasing for Pinot neophytes as well as connoisseurs, and pairs nicely with grilled salmon or roast duck.

    Schug has three new Pinots out. This is the highest and easiest. It's pale, delicate and silky, with easy cherry, cola, vanilla and spice flavors. Your basic Pinot for beginners.

    Schug's regular Pinot, as opposed to their Heritage Reserve, is a dependably village-style expression of easy-drinking, cool-climate Pinot Noir. The '06, like previous vintages, shows a silky, delicate texture framing cherry, raspberry and cola flavors, with a smoky vanilla edge of oak.

    Lively and gentle, this wine carries the cool scent of woodland herbs and coastal forests. It gains fullness with air, along with lasting sweet cherry flavor. The light weight and fresh seaweed notes make it a good match for roast King salmon.


    Winemaker's Notes:

    "Our Sonoma Coast designation draws upon some new vineyard sources, including Russian River that allow our winemaker added flexibility in creating blends of greater depth and complexity. Its vibrant flavors, reminiscent of raspberry and cherry, make it an ideal accompaniment to grilled fish and fowl, or barbecued meats. Similar in style to its predecessor the Sonoma Valley, this wine represents a tremendous value for everyday drinking." - Winemaker NotesCheese Pairings: Brie, Camembert, SwissFood Pairings: Roasted Chicken, Lamb Marsala, Salmon
