Winemaker Notes

Aromas of plump fruits and rich spices. Notes of fresh and delicate raspberries, ripe red cherries, and black plums are met by hints of toast & leather from the oak aging. The tannins are well integrated and the acidity beautifully balanced -the result of meticulous vineyard management and undeniable winemaking experience. Great aging potential.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Avid Vineyards Pinot Noir is finely crafted and well balanced. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers bright berries and bright minerality in its aromas and flavors. Enjoy it with grilled, lightly-seasoned lamb chops. (Tasted: September 5, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Structured, full bodied and rich, this is a fruity, earthy wine that is robust in flavors of cherry, vanilla and raspberry. It will appeal to fans of a bigger style of the variety.

Avid Pinot Noir is produced with grapes from our Petaluma Gap Vineyard in Sonoma County California. 

Touched by the warmth of the golden Californian sun, swirled by dainty wisps of fog, and caressed by soft, salty winds, the Petaluma Gap is a beautifully unique place that produces a beautifully unique wine.

Spanning Sonoma and Marin Counties, 32 miles north of San Francisco, this inland valley provides the perfect conditions for growing wine grapes. It's a newly-approved AVA (American Viticultural Area) that's fast becoming the superstar of the wine scene. The temperature here can shift 50 degrees throughout a single day - but it's the region's famous wind that creates the grapes' incredible, unique flavor.

The coastal influence on the terroir in the Petaluma Gap is undeniable, with the Pacific Ocean breezes being integral to the balanced flavor and aroma of the end product. The result of this pure, wild happenstance of nature is a smooth, elegant wine that's rich with the taste of plump dark fruits, warm comforting spices, and a deeper underlying earthiness.

A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs all the way from the Mendocino County border, south to the San Pablo Bay. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the actual coastal vineyards, marked by marine soils, cool temperatures and saline ocean breezes—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, which are still heavily influenced by the Pacific but not quite with same intensity.

Contained within the appellation are the much smaller Fort Ross-Seaview and Petaluma Gap AVAs.

The Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah. The wines have high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and balanced ripeness.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
