    Winemaker Notes

    The aromatics of the 2013 Sonoma Coast Pinot tend towards spice and cherry, and are fairly subtle. On the palate, one would not call this wine a fruit bomb. Its charms are less obvious; a little grip on the finish keeps the wine lively and the flavors are an interesting mix of fruit and savory.

    Byron Kosuge, winemaker at Saintsbury for 20 years, makes this blockbuster label of his own. Selecting vineyards for their unique terroir, Byron’s cornerstone is "The Shop," an expressive Pinot dedicated to the people who tend the grapes. It is joined by small productions sourced from top vineyards, including Hirsch, Hudson, Soberanes and his monopole vineyard in Carneros. All exquisite, these wines capture Byron's sense of dedication, modesty and elegance.

    Sonoma County, California

    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.”
