Flowers Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
Every Flowers wine is made to express the land where it was farmed. Our coastal proximity and high-elevation vineyards give our wine its distinct minerality and fresh acidity. Farmed sustainably, fermented with 100% native yeast and crafted with minimal intervention in the cellar, Flowers Pinot Noir is a pure expression of the rugged and extreme Sonoma Coast.
Inviting and expressive aromas of bright red cherry, and raspberry are combined with hints of savory ground clove spice and graham cracker. Nuances of graphite and sea salt bring another dimension that come together with a bright acidity driving a long, lively finish.
Moving to the reds, there are three Sonoma Coast and one Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. The 2019 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast is deeper ruby-hued and has pure, classic, textbook notes of ripe cherries, raspberries, spring flowers, and underbrush. The balance is spot on, it has ripe, present tannins, good freshness, and a great finish.
The 2019 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is effusive right out of the bottle. Bright red/purplish berry fruit and lifted aromatics give the 2019 so much immediacy and sheer appeal. Medium in body and supremely gracious, the Sonoma Coast Pinot is a terrific introduction to the lineup.
Juicy and broad in appeal with a generous helping of baked cherry and strawberry, this coastal wine is also earthy and savory in rhubarb and black tea. Lengthy, bold and balanced, it has well-integrated oak and tannin, finishing in a taste of black tea and forest floor.
