Winemaker's Notes

Clear, crystalline medium rose-salmon color. Aromas of vine-ripened strawberries and green apples, with background notes of sweet oak. On the palate, abundant flavors of cranberry, pomegranate and crisp Fuji apples. Through the finish, the wine opens to a more opulent array of crisp, tangy fruits. A long, red-fruit-driven finish completes this lighter expression of classic Pinot Noir. Best enjoyed well chilled.

Critical Acclaim

"Wonderfully fruity, but free of even the least hint of candy, and all Pinot Noir in its keen focus on cherries and plums, this pale, salmon-hued working has a nice sense of vinous substance and more fruity depth than most of the competition, but it is always lively and light on its feet. Well-placed acidity counters its scant touch of residual sugar, and its brisk, long-lasting finish is both cleansing and filled with flavor. "

This wine tastes quite wonderful and refreshing. However, I am only giving it three stars as it is exhausting getting it out of the bottle. The price can't be beaten, but neither can the pink wax that you will be picking up for days around your house trying to get the cork out of the bottle. Maybe this worked easily in 2006, but in 2011, the wax has congealed and you need pliers and a broom to enjoy the wine. I bought a case and I can't wait until it is gone. I can't give it to anyone as it would have to be given with an apology.

Fun summer sipping wine; but somewhat artificially sweet.

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
