Deep ruby color. Aromas of wild strawberries, cranberries, savory dried herbs and forest floor lift elegantly from the glass. On the palate, flavors of Bing cherry, raspberry, and pomegranate are framed by fine-grained tannins, coastal minerality and bright acidity that culminate on the lengthy finish.

The 2013 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. The flavors are floral and nicely lifted, while the fruit is already quite soft. This tasty, straightforward offering is best enjoyed over the near term.-AG

Shy and reserved, this cool-climate wine opens coyly with a burst of spearmint on the nose, evolving into layers of flavor steeped in rhubarb, black cherry and tea. Soft and lilting, the wine’s finish conjures thoughts of strawberry cream.-VB
