Winemaker Notes

Aromatics of cherry, pennyroyal, with subtle undernotes of rose petal and earthiness. The soft palette lifts with bright and silky tannins, cranberry flavors and a persistent spicy finish.

Wine Enthusiast
The color is on the light side, with a garnet to brick hue. Intriguing aromas of forest floor, tobacco and black cherry waft out of the glass. Rich flavors suggest dark fruits, clove, cola and anise, and the texture is simultaneously generous and firmly tannic. Very complex and well balanced overall, it is just nicely medium bodied.

Phillips Hill Winery Image
Phillips Hill Winery is located on Greenwood Ridge, west of Anderson Valley in the Mendocino Ridge appellation. Founder and Winemaker, Toby Hill established Phillips Hill Winery in 2002. A former visual artist, Toby translates his intense study and practice of composition into the delicate balance of making wine. His 1997 purchase of 30 acres just 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean put him in the heart of Anderson Valley’s premium Pinot Noir country, where the availability of grapes from exceptional local vineyards influenced him to focus primarily on the cool climate variety. Pilgrimages to Burgundy, France, have also shaped Toby’s pursuit of a refinement and elegance in style. Here he established collaborative relationships with Burgundian winemakers. Using old world winemaking practices from new world vineyards, he aspires towards terroir driven wines. Using native yeast, less intervention, and believing less is more, Toby’s intent is for each wine to be a genuine expression of the land.

Reaching up California's coastline and into its valleys north of San Francisco, the North Coast AVA includes six counties: Marin, Solano, Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake. While Napa and Sonoma enjoy most of the glory, the rest produce no shortage of quality wines in an intriguing and diverse range of styles.

Climbing up the state's rugged coastline, the chilly Marin County, just above the City and most of Sonoma County, as well as Mendocino County on the far north end of the North Coast successfully grow cool-climate varieties like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and in some spots, Riesling. Inland Lake County, on the other hand, is considerably warmer, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc produce some impressive wines with affordable price tags.

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.”
