    Tucked in the hills, just two miles from the Sonoma Coast, is the winery Flowers; always a very elegant Pinot Noir. With one of the most beautiful settings of any winery, this very special terroir produces some amazing wines, the nose blooming with wild raspberry , pomegranate, lavender, and rose petal. The new Flowers Sonoma Coast Pinot is remarkably balanced, cultivating soothing feelings of jubilation grafted with elegance and sophistication. Emerging from a selection of family - owned sites, and including aromas of wild strawberry, cranberry, delicate baking spices and forest floor lift elegantly from the glass. Very lively on the palate with a snap of acidity, red cherry, hibiscus and sea salt with graceful tannins round out the glass. Grilled lamb chops would be a fantastic pairing.

    Flowers' wines have long been a go-to for me. For decades they have been a shinning light of Sonoma Coast grape growing and have been instrumental in establishing one of the world's foremost regions for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. In the last few years I think the wines have continued to go from strength to strength finding more refinement and elegance than ever before. The wine making is deliberate and precise but never overpowers the delicacy of fruit or sense of place. It's expressive and accessible right out of the gate but also has layers and detail that unfolds with time and hold your attention. A bright, floral, lifted profile leads into a juicy core of ripe berry fruits, raspberry coulis, with some lovely savory, baking spice nuances. The wine's medium-bodied character and balance make it a very versatile food wine but one that is also perfectly delicious all alone.

    The cool, coastal influence shows beautifully on this well balanced Pinot. The "up front" fruit on the nose show tons of depth, pointing to this wine's great complexity. Velvety on the palate with a touch of bramble fruit make for an exciting Pinot that can pair up to a lot of different foods.

    In recent years Flowers has really stepped up its game - they've always produced marvelously lush and approachable wines, but lately their wine-making style has pivoted to a more delicate style. Notes of ripe red cherries, red berries, shaved fennel and cola with a bit of clove and baking spices to round out the finish. The wine sees a 9-day cold soak and contains declassified fruit from their upper tier bottlings such as Camp Meeting Ridge and a few others. Huge value for a top-notch Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir.
