Garnering critical acclaim, this wine exemplifies the best of the region’s characteristics. With 90 points from Jeb Dunnuck, it entices with a fragrant bouquet, redolent of cherry candy, crushed flowers, and forest floor, leading to a palate brimming with fresh red raspberry and cinnamon, culminating in a refreshing acidic finish.

This medium to full-bodied wine delights with its steady acidity, accentuating the dark-fruit and tobacco flavors while maintaining a persistent freshness. The sandy, easy-going tannins contribute to its allure, culminating in a wet-stone finish that lingers on the palate.

Vinous, bestowing 93 points, lauds the 2021 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) as a standout performer, expressing vibrant red and purplish fruit flavors. Bursting with notes of lavender, rose petal, spice, and mint, this Pinot Noir captivates with its dynamic and explosive character.

Critical Acclaim

JD 90
Jeb Dunnuck
The 2020 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast is flush with pristine fruit on the nose, including cherry candy, crushed flowers, and forest floor. The palate is fresh with red raspberry and cinnamon, and it has refreshing acidity on the finish. This is a lovely, classic wine for drinking over the next couple of years.

James Suckling
Perfumed aromas of red and black cherries, red licorice, cooking spice and rose water. Medium-to full-bodied with steady acidity that helps to articulate the dark-fruit and tobacco flavors, but retains freshness throughout. Sandy, easy-going tannins. Wet-stone finish. 100% estate grown.
VIN 93
The 2021 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is a huge overachiever. Bright, punchy and super-expressive, the 2021 offers up boisterous red/purplish fruit. Lavender, rose petal, spice and mint are all dialed up in this heady, explosive Pinot. Readers will have a very hard time finding a Pinot with this much quality for the money. All of the fruit is estate. I am not sure I have ever tasted a California Pinot this good for $40 a bottle.

Pinot Noir, a name derived from the French words for 'pine' and 'black,' refers to both a red-wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera and the wines predominantly made from these grapes.
