Sonoma County Pinot Noir

Rodney Strong

Estate Vineyards Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2014

Color is really light, mix of ruby and bloody grapefruit. Nose of wet mushroom, spice, fresh cranberry, pomegranate, and strawberry ice cream. Taste follows the nose with addition of substantial zest, good mix of acidity and sweetness. The taste is actually not light but flavorful. Aftertaste shows some more spice and zest. A bit too much zest. Other than that, quite nice. — 3 days ago

Wedding Cuvée Sparkling Blend 2013

This wine hit 18 on top 100 list in 2017. Best known for Sparkling Wines, served at White House since 1985. Pale salmon color, a blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay & aged 3 years prior to release, showing aromas of red fruit with citrus and biscuit notes. On the palate apple, strawberry and cherry flavors with orange zest, earthy yeasty spice and tiny bubbles. The wine is well balanced, good acidity, some yeast and minerality on the long finish. — a day ago

Rivers-Marie

Summa Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Such a treat. Closed initially and opens after a few minutes. Big, graceful, complex, nuanced, this has all of the goods. Ripe red fruits, some tart cherry, blood orange, and pine. Med+ mouthfeel, med acid, med- tannins and a finish that goes and goes. — 8 days ago

Block 10-Mass Selection Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

Perhaps the best WS I have had so far. Made with a field blend of various clones and 35% whole cluster, which is unusual for this producer. Fantastic nose of fruits, spices, and a touch of graphite. The palate was complex and the finish went on and on. A real treat. — 9 days ago

Red Car

Estate Fort Ross-Seaview Pinot Noir 2012

Beautiful garnet color. Cranberry and plum notes with just a little white pepper. Nice acidity and very vibrant. Another great one from Red Car. Not sure if it will develop further from here - freshness seems to indicate it has the stuff to develop a bit more. — 14 days ago

At this price point, pretty amazing pinot. Easy drinking pinot with that had a good mix of fruit forward characteristics as well a great freshness. Likely an easy wine to pair with all kinds of food. Just pop and pour - repeat. Amazing at this price point. — 14 days ago
