  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    ($65) Bright red color. Spicy raspberry and candied cherry on the nose, with tangy minerality and baking spices adding vivacity. Fresh and juicy, offering vivid red berry flavors, silky texture and good mineral snap. Focused, clean and brisk, with good finishing snap and noteworthy persistence.

    A distinctly ripe but not jammy nose of lavender, violets and fresh red berry fruit aromas merges into round, supple and moderately concentrated flavors that offer a real sense of place together with fine length. This is perhaps not quite as dense as prior vintages but in partial compensation is a fine sense of balance and unique character. Solid quality here in a somewhat riper style.

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.
