Flowers Vineyard & Winery Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2015

$39.99

93 Points - limited                    The new Flowers 2015 Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast now available. 93 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "Flowers' 2015 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is a lovely appellation level wine, and also one of the highlights in this range. Sweet red cherry, plum, dried flowers and tobacco all flesh out in the glass. Nuanced, soft, and open-knit, the 2015 Sonoma Coast Pinot is a gorgeous wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. This polished, impeccable Pinot is very nicely done." 93 Points Wine Enthusiast:  "Deep garnet hue. Aromas of wild strawberry, pomegranate, cranberry, savory dried herbs, violet and forest floor lift elegantly from the glass. On the palate, layers of blood orange and hibiscus are framed by fine-grained tannins, coastal minerality and brilliant acidity that culminate in a lengthy finish."

For an entry level appellation west coast Pinot, this is right down the middle of the fairway. Ruby in the glass with cedar, birch wood, sweet cherry and cola on the nose. The palate is a bit darker bringing on sweet tobacco, black cherry and a rhubarb tart spice. I think this is $45’ish/bottle, so in terms of QPR, I’ll buy Rivers-Marie SC bottle all day over this, and while I’m not with AGalloni’s 93 rating, I’m not too far off.

Fragrant, fruity, earthy and approachable, with soft tannins and reasonable acidity—very drinkable! Enjoyed the 2015 with NY steak at The Palm Restaurant in downtown LA.

Bright burgundy color. Red licorice. Bright berry, with a bit of heat on the nose. Crushed dark berry fruit, licorice root, and a sarsaparilla finish. Enjoyable.

Well balanced Cali Pinot. Violets and ripe raspberries on the nose, cherry and anise with a pleasant, albeit short finish. Didn’t hold up to our appetizers so best on its own. Lovely to drink!

A deep ruby color with a wide brim. A huge burst of fruit on the nose consisting of raspberries, wild strawberries, and pomegranate with cedar notes bringing up the rear. This is a very deliberate Pinot. Showing a consistent profile through the vintages, it’s a really nice juxtaposition of delicate fruit and a full body with firm tannins. A bit of elegance on the palate with more nice red fruit, baking spice, toasted cedar, and lavender. This is such a nice representation of this style of Pinot, it really is quite well done.
