Wine Review: This Venetian red colored Pinot Noir from Flanagan opens with a fragrant and attractive strawberry and raspberry bouquet with notes of tea leaves, cranberry, and cinnamon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, smooth, and a little rich. The flavor profile is a tasty black raspberry, loam, and cinnamon blend with notes of oak and pomegranate. We also detected some hints of stewed black plum, cedar, and cherry-cola. The finish is dry, and its flavors and acidity are very nicely sustained. The Tasting Panel would pair this Pinot with pan-seared duck, lamb lollipops or just enjoy it by itself. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: We sourced our 2022 "Sonoma Coast" Pinot Noir from our Gap's View Vineyard and from our River Road Grape Farm. The nose offers red plum, and black raspberry blossom, and spruce. On the palate there are notes of red plum skin, black raspberry, and warm, wet rock. This is a classic Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir with a lovely texture and abundant, but subtle, structure. (E.g. it has a lot of structure but not like Cabernet. It is softer and rounder with very supple tannins) The Sonoma Coast is the only place I source Pinot Noir from. I believe that the top New World Pinot Noirs come predominantly from this special slice of Sonoma County.
