Winemaker Notes

This 2009 Pinot noir is the most concentrated and complex Sonoma Coast blend we have bottled to date. Showing aromas of dark cherry, pomegranate and sweet oak, its textures are lush, yet taught, with a subtle edge of acidity. This wine is drinking well now and will continue to evolve over the next several years.

Critical Acclaim

WS 91
Wine Spectator
Slowly unfolding its savory herb, cola, wild berry and spice attributes, this gains depth and nuance, ending with a pleasing mix of complex flavors. Drink now through 2016.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast, which is a blend from two sites, Rodgers Creek and Keller Estate, is another wine made from the modern clones 115, 777, 667 as well as the older Pommard selection. More sassafras/rootbeer notes intermixed with herbs, flowers and berry fruit make for a complex, cool-climate impression aromatically, and a good, fleshy, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, with more spice and earthiness, jump from the glass. Winemaker Erich Bradley seems to have the Midas touch with the beautifully opulent, round and generous texture he builds into these wines without any sense of weightiness. Purity and nicely integrated wood, tannin and acidity are also admirable. This wine should drink well for 5-6 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.
