    Pale ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Camp Meeting Ridge gives up lovely lavender, powdered cinnamon, cloves and menthol notes over a core of kirsch and black cherries with a waft of garrigue. Medium-bodied and with a solid foundation of chewy tannins and just enough freshness, it has great red fruit and spice box intensity with excellent persistence.

  • 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.

    California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
