2009 Flowers Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast cranberries, dried cherries, gripping acidity, medium finish. Lively with some salinity and minerality

Tastefully hedonistic. An array of red fruits (cranberry, raspberry, sour cherry), minty herbs, baking spices - but all classy, not extravagant. Light to medium bodied, with just a bit of earthy tannin, overall silky and well-proportioned. A good village-level wine.

A solid Thanksgiving pinot for the table. Lifted red fruit profile with medium acidity and showing cranberry and ripe strawberry. Nice finish with no tannic profile, these are ready to go.

For an entry level appellation west coast Pinot, this is right down the middle of the fairway. Ruby in the glass with cedar, birch wood, sweet cherry and cola on the nose. The palate is a bit darker bringing on sweet tobacco, black cherry and a rhubarb tart spice. I think this is $45’ish/bottle, so in terms of QPR, I’ll buy Rivers-Marie SC bottle all day over this, and while I’m not with AGalloni’s 93 rating, I’m not too far off.

Stands up to its name....bright red fruits (cherry/cranberry) but more exquisitely roses, violets, and wet earth....and just a touch of herbs (thyme/dill).

Fragrant, fruity, earthy and approachable, with soft tannins and reasonable acidity—very drinkable! Enjoyed the 2015 with NY steak at The Palm Restaurant in downtown LA.
