The Sonoma Coast can be unforgiving. Fog and severe rain coming in from the ocean are commonplace. Despite the adversity, the region can yield sensational Pinot Noirs that should not be missed. The 2014 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is a tremendous appellation level Pinot. Deep, textured and resonant, the 2014 possesses striking depth and elegance not to mention impeccable overall balance. Succulent red cherry, smoke, licorice and blood orange infuse this deeply expressive Pinot Noir from Steve Kistler's Occidental winery. Readers who can find the 2014 should not hesitate.

Lush cherry up front with a bright cranberry finish. Tart and lively on the side palate.

This was a show stopper. Tasted over three days, it never slowed down. Really deep, so much spice, so many layers, lush and the right amount of that coastal funk that I really enjoy. The tits.

Typisk pinuttas från nya världen; rik, varm och kryddig smak med maraschinokörsbär som bärande inslag.

Berry and earthen nose. Raspberry and cranberry, tea and earthy, lingering finish.

I love kicking things off with a kicking Pinot!! My buddy Dov uncorked this beauty. I highly, highly recommend it! Gorgeous Floral Nose followed by what seemed to be a field of herbs. On the palate it was incredibly structured hitting the front, mid and back with beautiful fruit notes., forest floor moss, herb, spice and everything nice! Finely integrated tannins. This is a Rockstar and is built to play on for a long time! Thanks Dov!!!
