This wine has a rich tobacco leaf nose infused with notes of Bing cherry and brown baking spices. This vintage shows firm acidity, soft tannin, and a floral perfumed note that completes the soft palate of juicy red and blue fruits. It will pair wonderfully with a range of foods from cheeses to oily fish like salmon, or even sweet-spicy barbecue.
“The 2014 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is pale ruby colored, with warm cherries, red currants, dried herbs and a hint of loam. Medium-bodied and elegant, this is a great expression of Pinot Noir at a modest price, with nice length and fine-grained tannins.” –90 Points, Robert Parker
“A blend from seven vineyards, including Steve MacRostie’s Wildcat Mountain in the Petaluma Gap and four sites in Russian River Valley, this has warm notes of cherry pie and cedary scents of oak. Firm, fine-textured tannins keep the wine savory and spicy. Focused on oak, this should be best in a year or two.” –90 Points, Wine & Spirits
