Flowers Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2019


This is succulent, layered Pinot Noir with heaps going on - baked cherry, blueberry, violets and forest floor. There’s plenty to intrigue you. From a vintage of small yields and small berries, there’s a persistent grip in the structure, just asking for food. Representing a regional snapshot, fruit comes from the estate’s three organic vineyards, as well as growers they’ve had long relationships with.

Founded by Walt and Joan Flowers in 1989, this is one of those American producers with a cult following. With cool winds blowing off the Pacific Ocean, and elevation in play, the Sonoma Coast is considered a jewel in the crown of North American Pinot Noir styles.
