Editorial Reviews for Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Herby and leafy on the nose though with powerful base notes of dry soil, lightly toasted oak and meaty, spicy black fruit. Almost silken in the mouth, this is an iron fist in a velvet glove, though it is a dainty fist. This has wonderful depth and tension to it, very well balanced and wrapped with a deep yet fresh layer of cherry and ripe herb fruit. Everything is in balance and in proportion, at least if you don't mind a little extra dry extract in your Pinot. Still there is no heaviness here, just a hint of alcohol. This finishes with the same drive and purity it shows on the palate. This is delicious and refined. 92pts
Spicy nose of red raspberry. Seductive aromas also of black cherry and touches of mineral and cedar. Great structure, rich and dense. Builds from subtlety to richness and depth. Very flavorful and nice. 94 pts. 12/1/12
