The dramatic landscape of the Sonoma Coast, with its rocky, well-drained soil and elevated proximity to the cool Pacific Ocean, produces Pinot Noir with fresh, bright red fruit flavours, complex minerality, and brilliant acidity. Flowers sources fruit for this wine from small family-owned sites, as well as their own Sea View Ridge Estate vineyard.

Harvested in the cool hours of the very early morning, fruit was hand-sorted and de-stemmed, but not crushed, prior to fermentation. After a week-long cold soak, the loose berries were fermented by native yeast in small open-top fermenters. The wine was left on skins for almost three weeks. Pressed in a traditional basket press, the wine was settled overnight, then gravity-fed into French oak barrels (mostly old or second fill), where it was cellared for one year on fine lees prior to racking and blending just before bottling.

First, you’ll notice this Pinot’s deep garnet hue. Next, aromas of Bing cherry, raspberry, dried herbs, violets, and forest floor. On the palate, bright blood orange and hibiscus are framed by broad, fine-grained tannins, characteristic Sonoma Coast minerality, and bright acidity.

“Moving to the reds, the appellation 2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast was just about completely destemmed (2% stems) and spent 10 months in 18% new French oak. Lots of spice box, earthy forest floor, cherries, and redcurrant notes define the bouquet, and it’s medium-bodied and balanced, with good acidity and a great finish. As with everything from this estate, it’s impeccably made and high-quality. Drink it over the coming 5-7 years.”

“These are some of the most intriguing wines I have tasted from Flowers in some time. Winemaker Chantal Forthun and consultant Jeremy Seysses of Domaine Dujac are focusing on fewer bottlings, and that seems to be paying off. […] The 2018 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is pretty, aromatic and super-elegant. Crushed flowers, dried cherry, mint, sage, cedar and tobacco are some of the many notes that develop in the glass. The 2018 is perfumed, light on its feet and exquisitely beautiful — all qualities that make it a terrific choice for drinking over the next handful of years.”
