Winemaker Notes

Deep, intense garnet in color, this wine displays powerful aromatics of wild berry, wet stone, ‘sauvage’, and hints of tobacco. Select heritage clones combine to bring intensity and layered flavor to the palate. Wild blueberry, 5-spice, crushed rock, and hints of truffle combine with firm, spicy oak structure to create a dynamic and focused palate. The finish is long and delicious.

Critical Acclaim

TP 94
Tasting Panel

Opaque crimson color and aromas of black cherry; dense palate with more cherry and spice; smooth and long.

WS 93
Wine Spectator
This taut style shows a tensile, savory essence. Cast iron notes emerge midpalate, with hints of brushed metal. Dark currant and spice flavors extend on the powerful finish. Drink now through 2023.
JD 92
Jeb Dunnuck

From a single vineyard on the Sonoma Coast and brought up in just under 50% new French oak, the 2017 Pinot Noir Bob's Ranch reveals a deeper plum/ruby color as well as notes of Caramelized black cherries, blackberries, smoked earth, chocolate, and earth. It's a big, rich, concentrated effort that has sweet tannins, nicely integrated acidity, and a good finish. Drink it over the coming 5-6 years.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Walt Bob's Ranch Pinot Noir offers a focused look at this grape variety. TASTING NOTES: This wine is excellent and well defined. Pair its aromas and flavors of black fruit and dusty earth with a hot and sizzling, pan-fried hanger steak. (Tasted: April 29, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

This is a highly ripe, generously bodied wine, with robust flavors of candied cherry and cola. Earthy stem and forest play around its thick, viscous core of baking spice, finishing with plenty of tannin and oak

The Sonoma Coast AVA is large in area but, not counting overlapping regions like Russian River Valley, only has a few thousand acres of grapevines—and it’s no wonder. Much of the region is rugged and not easily accessible. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean’s fog and cool breezes limits the varieties that can be cultivated, but it proves to be an ideal environment for high quality Pinot Noir.

Since fog is a frequent fact of life here, as are heavy marine layers that sometimes bring rain, the best vineyards are wisely planted above the fog line, on picturesque ridges that capture enough sun to provide even ripening. That, with the overnight drop in temperature that reliably preserves acidity, results in fine expressions of Pinot Noir that often receive tremendous critic and consumer praise alike, and are often in high demand.
