  • Somm Notes

    Reviews: Funky, spicy, oaky aromas and rather tight flavors of black cherries and black currants give this full-bodied wine a complex and mouth-watering profile along with good balance for potential aging. Best through 2028. — Jim Gordon (90 pts WE)

  • Region

    Sonoma is a historical center of winemaking in Northern California; home to more old vineyards (along with the Sierra Foothills) than any other region in California. Sonoma wine country has its roots in farming and that same homespun character persists throughout the county, earning the nickname “California’s Provence.” From illustrious vineyards and wineries to the small family run wineries, there is a wine for every palate.

    Sonoma County produces twice as much wine as its esteemed neighbor, Napa Valley. Established as an American Viticultural Area (AVA) in 1981, Sonoma Valley boasts a rich winemaking heritage steeped in tradition and innovation. What sets Sonoma Valley apart is its unique terroir, shaped by the protective embrace of Sonoma Mountain against the dampening influence of the nearby Pacific Ocean. While cool air from the Los Carneros region and the Santa Rosa Plain dances through the vineyards, it is tempered by the valley's sheltering embrace, resulting in an ideal microclimate for cultivating exceptional wines. From the fertile valley floor to the rocky slopes of the mountains, the soils of Sonoma Valley are as diverse as the wines they produce, offering winemakers unique terroir driven grapes.
