Winemaker Notes

Color: The color is intense and the density is readily apparent.

Aroma: The bouquet provides an explosion of red fruit, blackberry, black cherry and vibrant notes of raspeberry. The oak aging contributes a toasted vanilla and balsamic-like element in the nose. Then, instead of dispersing, all the scents blend together to give greater complexity, precious wood and cedar notes.

Flavor: In the mouth, the first impression is density and volume. The wine is round, full and very... View More

Critical Acclaim

JS 95
James Suckling

This shows a beautiful balance of fruit with licorice, blackberries and hints of mineral. Just a touch of plum jam too. Full body, silky tannins and a gorgeous finish. It's drinking so beautifully now. Fabulous. A blend of 65% carmenere, 22% cabernet sauvignon and 13% malbec.

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.
