Winemaker Notes

Dark ruby color. Intense flavors of black cherry, boysenberry and blueberry. Wonderful nose of rose petals and spice combined with a delightful earthiness. A big, but well balanced wine with good acid and soft tannins to complement the conentrated fruit flavors. A wine that reveals layer upon layer of mouthwatering structure, depth and complexity as it lingers on the palette.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 96
Wine Spectator
Bold, ripe and assertive, with rich, distinctive blueberry, huckleberry and boysenberry fruit that's pure and delicious. This is tightly focused on the fruit, showing hints of mineral, sage, cola and earth on the finish. Finally the vintage in which the estate wine struts its stuff. Drink now through 2015. 348 cases made.

Kanzler Vineyards, North Coast, California
Kanzler Vineyards located in Sebastopol, CA specializes in growing, and producing small lots of traditionally crafted, Pinot Noir from exceptional vineyards in the cool but sunny hills of western Sonoma County in the Sonoma Coast AVA.

Kanzler Vineyards began in 1996 as the dream of Stephen and Lynda Kanzler. Planted in 1996, in a former apple orchard, near the town of Sebastopol, Kanzler Vineyard quickly developed a reputation for producing world class Pinot Noir fruit, featured in award winning wines from some of the finest wineries in Northern California.

In 2004, the Kanzlers partnered with winemaker Greg Stach, to make wine from grapes grown exclusively from their vineyard. The first estate-bottled wine, Kanzler Vineyards, 2004 Sonoma Coast and 2004 Reserve Sonoma Coast, Pinot Noir were released in July, 2005. That wine garnered rave reviews, receiving a 93 from Wine Spectator, virtually unheard of for a first release. The 2005 and 2006 releases were also highly rated and well received, selling out almost as soon as they were released.

North Coast

View all wine

Encompassing the grape-growing regions located north of San Francisco, the North Coast AVA includes six counties: Lake, Marin, Mendocino, Napa, Sonoma, and Solano. Napa and Sonoma get all of the attention, but there are a few other counties producing great wine in Northern California. Two notable examples are Mendocino and Lake County, the northernmost winegrowing regions in the state. These AVAs are very different, both from their neighbors to the south and from one another.

Mendocino benefits from the cooling fog of the Pacific Ocean and is able to successfully grow cool-climate varieties like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Riesling. There is a significant focus here on organic viticulture. Inland Lake County, on the other hand, is considerably warmer, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Sauvignon Blanc are the dominant varieties. Both regions are excellent sources of high-quality but affordable California wines in a wide range of styles.

Pinot Noir

View all wine

One of the most difficult yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is commonly referred to by winemakers as the “heartbreak grape.” However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. More reflective than most varieties of the land on which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality, and demands care in the vineyard and lots of attention in the winery. It is an important component of Champagne and the only variety permitted in red Burgundy. Pinot Noir enjoys immense popularity internationally, most notably in Oregon, California, and New Zealand.

In the Glass

Pinot Noir Is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and lively acidity. It ranges in body from very light to the heavier side of medium, typically landing somewhere in the middle—giving it extensive possibilities for food pairing. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount), it can develop hauntingly beautiful characteristics of fresh earth, autumn leaves, and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon, ocean trout, and tuna. Its mild mannered tannins don’t fight with spicy food, and give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry—chicken, quail, and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, it can even match with heavier fare. Pinot Noir is also very vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

Pinot Noir is dangerously drinkable, highly addictive, and has a bad habit of emptying the wallet. Look for affordable but still delicious examples from Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (as Pinot Nero), Chile, New Zealand, and France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions.
