It has a rocking nose of spiced cherries, raspberries, scorched earth, white flowers, and subtle oak. Medium-bodied with a pure, crystalline texture, nicely integrated acidity, and a great finish, this beautiful Pinot Noir needs 2-3 years of bottle age but will evolve for a solid decade. This is a textbook Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. For the anti-alcohol crowd, it's under 12% alcohol.

This has a vibrant, raspberry and dried red-cherry nose with earthy and spicy complexity. The palate has a sleek and fluid channel of ripe red cherries, carrying even and fresh. Drink or hold.

Rose petal, mint, sage, dried flowers, game and sweet red berry notes are all finely cut. This is an especially nervous, edgy style. There is no shortage of personality or character here. -- Antonio Galloni
