    Winemaker Notes

    This wine begins with a nose that is both vibrant and complex, with lovely aromas of dark cherry, pomegranate, anise, vanilla and clove. On the palate, it is round and mouthfilling with gorgeous red berry flavors, supported by lingering notes of currants, vanilla bean and roasted coffee.

    Sonoma-Loeb Winery, Sonoma County, California
    John L. Loeb, Jr. was the United States Ambassador to the Kingdom of Denmark from 1981 to 1983. He then served as a United States Delegate to the United Nations. Ambassador Loeb has been growing grapes at his Russian Riverbend Vineyards in the Alexander Valeey of Sonoma County since 1973. The grapes from these vineyards have been purchased by many of California's leading wineries. Since 1990, John Loeb has devoted a small portion of his best Chardonnay to the production of Sonoma-Loeb wines. Grapes for the production of Sonoma-Loeb wines have also been purchased from the Sangiacomo and Yamakawa Vineyards in the Sonoma Carneros. The wines are made using traditional Burgundian techniques including barrel fermentation, malolactic fermentation and extended sur lie aging.

    A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties—they cover nearly double the vineyard acreage compared to whites.

    While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

    The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Bordeaux Blends garner global attention and in some cases, "cult" status.

    Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates with vineyards climbing up mountains, reaching far into valleys and stretching along some the state’s most dramatic coastlines. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon do well in its warmer locations.

    The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and remain active frontiers for newer varieties, namely Rhône and Spanish.

    The cool Anderson Valley in California’s North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.

    Winemaking in California dates back to the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes. But the industry experienced its first boom with the Gold Rush in the last half of the 19th century when miners brought vines to the Sierra Foothills.
