($45) Deep red. Spicy cherry and cassis aromas are a bit musclebound but slowly open to show subtle floral and iron qualities. Powerful, deeply concentrated cherry and cherry skin flavors dominate the palate. Finishes with solid tannins and a hint of espresso. This needs time.

Great Wine Value

I happen to love the Sonoma Coast AVA Pinots and I feel that this wine has all the rock solid components that you would expect from it. Great acidity with good raspberry fruit and hints of cola (yes I said cola!!) Believe it or not, this tastes very similar to a (very young) Vincent Girardin Volnay that I had recently. A great effort--I would highly recommend it for the price.

I ordered a case to drink gradually over the next few years to see how it develops.

I'm not a huge fan of pinot but my mother bought me one when she went to the winery and I was impressed with the tremendous aromas and big taste..My favorite Pinot by far!

For many wine enthusiasts, this is part of the appeal of Pinot -- it doesn't reveal its charms easily. Pinot Noir's virtue also stems from the unique characteristics of the grape. The skins are especially delicate, which accounts for the lighter color and body of finished wine. But, despite the delicacy, the best wines have excellent backbone and...
