Winemaker Notes

The 2007 vintage was memorable in this area and this bottling shows the intense, generous black cherry fruit of Marimar Torres' best years, with hints of rose petals, clove, and peat from the elegant oak. On the palate it is rich and smooth, with silky mouthfeel and nicely integrated, supple yet firm tannins. It shows great aging potential but is drinking beautifully now.

Wine & Spirits
From a high-density planting six miles from the sea, this vintage of Mas Cavalls blends a California heritage clone (it's 56 percent Pommard, which creates some of the most transparent and compelling pinots in the right far-coast conditions) with a Dijon clone (115, which contributes to the deep well of dark cherry fruit). The fruits is sweet but the wine is not sweet, layered in licorice scents, Christmas spice, redwood frond and fern - a vinous evocation of the coast that has the power to improve your modd the way ocean air might. (It improved my mood just to smell this wine, particularly a day or two after it was first opened.) It develops beautifully - remarkably tight in its mineral-inflected tannin - an ethereal memory of the Anderson Woods.

Wine Enthusiast
Stunningly delicious. A real dazzler in the mouth, offering complex tiers of cherries, raspberries, sweet vanilla, rose petals, cinnamon and clove and smoky sandalwood. This richness is perfectly balanced by crisp, coastal acidity and a hint of tannin astringency. Hard to keep from drinking now, but it should develop over the next six years.

Sonoma County

View all wine

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for nearly every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa, the region only produces about half the amount of wine, but what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in both quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River and Sonoma Valleys, Carneros, and Fort Ross-Seaview. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

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.
