Sonoma County Pinot Noir

Hanzell

Sebella Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2014

Black cherry, strawberry jam, hint of black pepper, subtle clean minerality. Very ripe very round perfect acid like medium, medium plus. I like to say sorrel/rhubarb when I taste something like if you eat a strawberry leaf. It has a smooth woodiness to it. I know hanzell does a good amount of new French oak on wines.. this was perfectly balanced with the oak. I always feel like this winery is so underrated. So much depth and sensual vibes going on — a day ago

Good news Brian

Hirsch Vineyards

The Bohan-Dillon Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2007

Okay... I admit this bottle got lost on the rack. I anticipated little but apart from a dry and broken cork, the wine soared. Starting to brown a bit, definitely cloudy, the nose sent out waves of secondary notes of briar, chocolate, and caramel. Lively on the palate with no noticeable oak or tannin but layers of bright, vibrant fruit and acidity. Who says simple, Sonoma coast pinots don't age? What a lovely, delightful surprise. Old wine rules!! — 20 days ago

The Sonoma Coast can be unforgiving. Fog and severe rain coming in from the ocean are commonplace. Despite the adversity, the region can yield sensational Pinot Noirs that should not be missed. The 2014 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is a tremendous appellation level Pinot. Deep, textured and resonant, the 2014 possesses striking depth and elegance not to mention impeccable overall balance. Succulent red cherry, smoke, licorice and blood orange infuse this deeply expressive Pinot Noir from Steve Kistler's Occidental winery. Readers who can find the 2014 should not hesitate.

Sonoma Coast Rosé of Pinot Noir

This never disappoints! Bright fruit overtaken by crisp acidity. Makes you forget about the pouring rain outside the window on the first day of a beach weekend! Wish I could send the rain to California. But since I can’t #drinksonoma is the best I can do. #sonomastrong — 6 days ago

If you're not on this mailing list, then get on it (if you can)... made by former marcassin protege, Matt Courtney, this stuff is insanely good. Plenty of fruit, texture and nuance. It has so many aromas and flavors... clove, cinnamon, strawberry, licorice, all spice. It's so much fun to see how this evolves in glass...
super young, I suspect this will age for many many years but it was fun to try today..:/ nice!!!!

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

First post in awhile. The fam and I evacuated from the fires a few days ago. The good news is that the house is still standing (at least for now) and we are safe!! Let's drink wine...This wine was a good find at the little grocery store in town. Dark fruited and silky. Slight cough medicine thing I often get in domestic Pinot. Hit the spot. — 7 days ago
