Recently, we've been moving towards a less extractive and more elegant style of Pinot that emphasizes perfume, balance and complexity. Consequently, our 2009 Sonoma Coast is more
aromatic than previous vintages. It exudes Maraschino cherries, strawberries, vanilla, sandalwood and Oriental spice. While it
drinks beautifully now, it will continue to improve over the next two years. I highly recommend serving all of our Pinots in large,
wide stemware to amplify the beautiful, haunting aromas. Serve with grilled salmon and Asian food.
"Sebastiani has had good results with their Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, and this bottling continues that tradition. It's a lovely wine, dry and rich, with raspberry and cherry pie, sweet, smoky oak and spice flavors, brightened with fine acidity. A wonderful wine for restaurants at a price that's affordable. "
Earthy & Spicy
Beef > Stew
I would rate this a 88 !!
Surprisingly good for the price.
The aromas are very earthy almost pungent, let it breathe it gets better. Flavors are also very earthy, strong tannins linger. I would drink this alone or with a meal
Have rated this before. Its got a great nose but not a long finish - medium body and very good. Better with food.
I am always worried about pinots under $20. This is a great value wine. Very delightful, especially for the price. Typical Sonoma Pinot, big fruit taste up front, I get cherries and vanilla, nice lingering aftertaste (though a little strong). I'll buy this again.
Earthy & Spicy! Strong oriental spice and sandalwood smell..I would recommend letting it improve and not opening it for the next 2 years.
The taste was not what I expected. It has an earthy smell and feel. The Oriental spice comes through for me.
Light & Fruity
Heavy in acidity without the balance of fruit.
