This wine is made up of a blend of ten vineyards including Camp Meeting Ridge and Flowers' new ranch off of Fort Ross Road. Brilliant clear red colored wine with Sonoma Coast derived aromas of red fruits, caramel, light spice, saddle leather, some new oak, a touch of anise, and candied plum. Fruit wrapped in smooth caramel continues on the palate but the tannins are a little obtrusive at present. Give the wine a few years and the velvety nature of the wine will reassert itself.

About This Producer


In 1989, Walt and Joan Flowers' quest for a cool climate vineyard site lead these former nursery owners to answer a short classified ad for land on the rugged Sonoma coast of Northern California. Atop 1,150-1,875-foot high ridges overlooking the Pacific Ocean, they have grown and produced quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay since the inaugural vintage in 1993. Flowers holds two estate properties: Camp Meeting Ridge, 23 acres of vines planted on the original property; and Flowers Ranch, 47 acres of Pinot planted from 1998-2001 on a second property. Both of these parcels benefit from abundant sunshine during the growing season, with the warmth tempered by the fog and cool wind off the ocean. Case production is around 15,000 cases each year. The finished products are consistently praised as excellent representations of the extreme terrior of the Northern Sonoma coastline.
