Winemaker Notes

Brilliant golden yellow hue. Fruit (dried apricots, jam), spice and a hint of acacia flower honey on the nose. Complex palate with sweet, soft, mineral undertones. Long, fresh finish.

Critical Acclaim

The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Les Abeilles is a late-harvest wine made from Muscat and Petit Grain. Peaches, cantaloupe spices, lime peel, pears and minerals emerge from this focused yet generous sweet wine. There is gorgeous balance and overall poise here, yet this remains a somewhat understated linear style. The wine is best paired with cheeses that aren’t too aged.

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.
