  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    Pale yellow. Smoky lees, honey, orange pith and yellow apple on the pungent nose. Offers juicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a touch of bitter quinine, which adds refreshing bite and lift. Finishes on a tangy note, with very good clarity and a suave floral quality. There's a light, zesty touch to this wine that would allow it to work with simply prepared or raw shellfish.

  • 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.
