Winemaker Notes

In spite of difficult climatic conditions the wines have turned out remarkably well. The Grand Vin has a deep garnet color, and though the bouquet is still a little closed, it starts to develop nice dried plum and crystallized fruits aromas. In the mouth, after an initial impression of softness and silkiness, the palate stretches out surprisingly onto very persistent flavors. The tannins are well fleshed out without any harshness. Not a monster, but a very balanced wine with concentration and class.

A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs from the San Pablo Bay to the Mendocino County border. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the “true” Sonoma Coast, marked by high rainfall, marine soils, cool temperatures, and saline ocean breezes, from which one can actually see the ocean—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, creating a diversity of wine styles. Contained within the appellation is the much smaller and more focused Fort Ross-Seaview AVA.

Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant [Pinot Noir], Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah, with high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and fruit that is rarely overripe. One of the most favorable sites within the region is the Petaluma Gap, where a break in the coastal mountain range allows Pacific winds and fog to funnel through and cool the vineyards.
