Wine Review: This Sonoma Coast Pinot finished in third place in our mini blind tasting of high end Pinots. This ruby colored wine opens with a mild raspberry like bouquet with hints of strawberry. On the palate, this light bodied wine is nicely balanced, smooth, and soft with mild red cherry and raspberry flavors. There is a touch of spice as well. The finish is dry and subtle. The panel thought this food friendly Pinot would go quite nicely with a tuna steak or halibut. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Vibrant black cherry, mineral, coffee, and Asian spice aromas and flavors complement the fine grained, silky tannins that reflect the cool, coastal ridge terroir. 2005 is the inaugural vintage of Far Coast Vineyard Pinot Noir.
