Clos Pepe Vineyard Goat Bubbles Blanc de Noirs Pinot Noir 2016

At Flying Goat, the goal is to produce unpretentious, playful wines while retaining a serious quality focus and commitment to a purity of expression from single-vineyard sites such as the Solomon Hills Vineyard, Bien Nacido Vineyard, Rancho Santa Rosa, to name a few.

This intention is reinforced by everything from the whimsical labels (Flying Goat, Goat Bubbles, YNOT), to the critical acclaim Flying Goat Cellars has garnered for its impressive wines, to the impeccably balanced and delicious Pinot Noir and vintage, traditional method sparkling wines.

This 2016 blanc de noirs sparkler — made with Pinot Noir hailing from the Bien Nacido Vineyard — is medium gold in appearance, with a fine and creamy mousse, and fresh notes of just-ripe yellow apple, pear, white peach, lemon zest, citrus blossom, biscuit, toast, brioche, toasted almond, and marzipan. It has a lingering, elegant finish.

@Delectable Wine this is the blanc de noirs bien nacido vineyard 2016 vintage sparkling (Goat Bubbles, Flying Goat Cellars)

Blakeman Vineyard Merlot 2013

One of my favorite merlot wines ever. Last bottle, 10 years old. An amazing nose of a basket of berries in the sun at a picnic table in a redwood grove with freshly cut grass nearby. It smells divine. There’s also a baking spice berry pie element but acidity is prominent. Palate is just wonderful berry bramble and more baking spice, good tannin, a hint of dried fruit but this is tasting fresh still. What a wine!! Wish they didn’t make 47 different wines each year and focused on stuff like this. — 10 months ago

Twinkle California Red Blend 2019

Ripe black fruit aromas, a definite texture with the medium body, tart fruit and light acidity with some soft lingering spices. Deliciously drinkable. Happy Valentine's Day 💗 — 2 years ago

New Glou Fenaughty, Girard, Testa and Cloud Vineyard Marsanne Blend 2023

2023. Diverted my latest shipment from the D&G club to NE since I knew I’d be back for the holidays. I’m glad they included this gulpable “nouveau” again this year. Paired great with local chèvre and olive sourdough! — 5 months ago

Isabel's Cuvée Gibson Ranch Grenache Rosé 2022

2022. Weather was really encouraging rosé on the patio, so we were happy to oblige! Loads of chunky sediment that was easily kept in the bottle (kind of). Delicious pink grapefruit, strawberry, watermelon. Mouthwatering acidity, but balanced with the fruit. — 6 months ago
