Wine AdvocateThe last of the appellation releases, the 2014 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast was brought up in 55% new French oak, which is slightly more than the 2013. Deep, rich and earthy, with notes of bouquet garni, smoked earth, licorice and dark fruits, it has full-bodied richness, a big mid-palate and is packed with gorgeous amounts of fruit. It's a big, rich wine from this cool climate appellation, yet I suspect it will show more classic Sonoma Coast characteristics with a year or two in bottle. It's a beautiful wine.

Wine SpectatorNotably elegant and rich, with a deceptively deep and persistent mix of raspberry and wild berry flavors, shaded by gravelly earth and savory notes that lose a bit of focus on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 5,550 cases made.
