Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir continues to be all the rage in the domestic wine market. The Sonoma Coast ranges from windswept cliff-bound vineyards on its northern border with Mendocino to the gently rolling hills in the south by San Pablo Bay. These vineyards are site specific ‒ the soils and climate differ greatly from one vineyard to the next. However, they are ulitimately defined by the cold Pacific Ocean and the elements produced therein, importantly including the Pacific fog which in some areas of the Sonoma Coast rolls in daily, settling densely in lower elevations.
Sonoma Pinot Noir is characterized by its bold black cherry and spice notes. This version of Pinot Noir will be heavier bodied than its Chilean counterpart and stand up to heartier dishes. Best served with a slight chill.
