Flowers Vineyard & Winery Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2017

$47

93 Points - limited                    The new Flowers 2017 Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast now available. 94 Points James Suckling: "Beautiful dark berries with ripe strawberries and hints of decadence and richness. Some meat, too. Full-bodied, dense and rich with tight and linear tannins. Needs a year or two to soften. Better in 2022." 93 Points Wine Enthusiast:  "The 2017 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is a very pretty appellation-level Pinot from Flowers. Rose petal, crushed flowers, sage, mint and crushed berries are all nicely laced together, with a touch of whole cluster influence that adds attractive aromatic overtones. Medium in body, gracious and light on its feet, the 2017 has so much to offer. What a pretty wine this is."

Definitely a crowd pleaser. The level of acidity is just on the border of flabby but not in a bad way! Very quaffable.

We were looking for a simple bottle tonight, but were at the end of our everyday wines and opened this instead. It it not a simple wine. Much more earthiness and terroir than I expect from a Pinot. Cherries and tea(?) on the nose. Notes of Vanilla (feels like fairly prominent oak) and a bit hot (13.5%), hiding some of the more subtle flavors.

Somewhat of a metallic characteristic to the wine, medium bodied, stronger dark berry characters as well.

Beautiful costal Pinot from one of my favorite producers. Great balance and color while maintaining fruit intensity. Nice silky finish.

Very odd. Doesn’t even smell like wine. Smells just like flowers. Weird. Strangely enough, I like it.

Such a consistently fabulous Pinot. Opened and left it in the fridge overnight - sharpness dissipated. Great with a pate, Brie, and sweet jam.
