Winemaker Notes

This complex cool-climate Pinot Noir displays lovely texture and tension. On the nose, layers of blackberry, raspberry, moist earth and fresh-cut grass evolve and expand over time. The robust dark berry flavors continue on the palate, where they are underscored by a firm, sophisticated structure that adds nuance and grip.

Critical Acclaim

JS 94
James Suckling
Impressive clarity and purity of red and blue-fruit aromas, as well as subtly earthy complexity. The palate has a beautifully silky core of ripe red and black cherries. Velvety tannins. Really even and long. Drink or hold.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Well-structured, showing vibrant dried cherry, red plum and currant flavors that are backed by zesty acidity. The minerally finish is fresh and focused, with a savory edge. Drink now through 2022.

COMMENTARY: My love for Sonoma Coast Pinot Noirs continues to grow, and while there is always a question of whether a wine is from the "true Sonoma Coast" or not, this AVA is delivering some of California's finest Pinot Noirs. The 2016 Migration Sonoma Coast is an excellent example of the wines my palate favors. TASTING NOTES: This wine is beautifully appointed. Its aromas and flavors of bright cranberries and strawberries should pair well with pan-seared wild king salmon. (Tasted: September 10, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Connoisseurs' Guide

By Duckhorn. Optimally ripened and emphatically fruity with an integral complement of vanillin oak augmenting its moderately intense cherry and raspberry aromas and flavors, this substantial, full-bodied working is little concerned with delicacy and detail and, is instead, a wine that is about straight-ahead richness. It is nominally tannic and may find a more elegant footing with age, but, even if not, it earns an enthusiastic, thumbs-up vote for its fruity abundance and depth.

Since our inaugural 2001 vintage of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir, Migration has developed a refined and compelling style that balances vibrancy and finesse. In the years since, Migration has taken wing beyond our Anderson Valley origins as we have explored Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from California’s finest cool-climate appellations, most notably the legendary Sonoma Coast. Today, Migration works with a handful of acclaimed growers to produce a small portfolio of sought-after Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, including our flagship Sonoma Coast wines, and our coveted vineyard-designates. These sophisticated, Burgundian-varietal wines highlight lush fruit, bright acidity and balanced oak influence.

Sonoma Coast Wine

Sonoma County, California

View all products

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.
