    Smooth, ripe and fleshy-textured, it glides across the palate with a delicate array of black cherry, wild berry and plum notes. Deftly balanced, it impresses with its delicacy and finesse.

    An extremely pretty, fresh and elegant spicy red pinot fruit nose introduces supple, beautifully defined and pure flavors that are the essence of pinot, all wrapped in an admirably long if slightly edgy finish. There is very good extract and while this is presently more about the fruit than serious complexity, the impressive quality of the material and underlying minerality suggest that the depth will come with bottle age. I like both the style and the texture here. Recommended and this should reward 4 to 5 years of bottle age.

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.
