Rich garnet color. Aromas of vanilla, clove and cooking spiceswith hints of ripe berry, pomegranate and toast. Soft entry,balanced tannin and berry fruit mingled with pleasant acidityand lingering finish.

Wine Enthusiast
Dark, concentrated and grippy, this is a sizable Pinot from a cool, coveted vineyard. Juicy blue and blackberry fruit dominate on the nose and palate, surrounded by exotic cedar, clove, oak and toffee, a swipe of vanilla lurking behind the front flavors. The big tannins will appreciate time in the cellar, through 2022–2024.

Trombetta, California
Trombetta Winery Image
Trombetta Family Wines is based in Forestville, California, in the heart of the cool-climate Petaluma Gap sub-region of the Sonoma Coast AVA. The wines are produced by the dynamic mother/daughter team of Rickey Trombetta Stancliff and Erica Stancliff.

Since their debut with the 2010 vintage, the Trombetta bottlings exhibit the vintners’ unmistakable emphasis on making wines to accompany food. The label sprang from a serious passion with home gardening that merged with some inspired home-winemaking efforts, the winery’s focus is on producing balanced wines that reflect their vineyard source and that perfectly accompany food.

The Trombetta wines show well upon release, but we recommend cellaring our releases for a year or two, just to give them a little time to evolve further.

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.

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.”
