Critical Acclaim

Jeb Dunnuck
The entry-level 2016 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast is also brilliant and probably the best value play by far. Coming all from the Sangiacomo Vineyard on the Sonoma Coast and aged ten months in 30% new barrels, seeing around 10% whole clusters, it has plenty of dark cherry and cola notes as well as nuanced spice characteristics, medium body, a rounded, silky texture, ripe tannins, and a great finish. This is classic California Pinot Noir that’s perfect for drinking over the coming 4-5 years.

The Sonoma Coast AVA is large in area but, not counting overlapping regions like Russian River Valley, only has a few thousand acres of grapevines—and it’s no wonder. Much of the region is rugged and not easily accessible. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean’s fog and cool breezes limits the varieties that can be cultivated, but it proves to be an ideal environment for high quality Pinot Noir.

Since fog is a frequent fact of life here, as are heavy marine layers that sometimes bring rain, the best vineyards are wisely planted above the fog line, on picturesque ridges that capture enough sun to provide even ripening. That, with the overnight drop in temperature that reliably preserves acidity, results in fine expressions of Pinot Noir that often receive tremendous critic and consumer praise alike, and are often in high demand.
