    September 2, 2014 - While I think the RRV is an excellent example of what those wines should be I found the Sonoma Coast to be all too similar to other SC Pinots I have had lately. Very good wine, but it didn't strike me as extra special.

    August 23, 2014 - The color is pretyy ruby-magenta, with brilliant hue, and is deep color but is translucent. The smells are cola, sassafras, sweet cherry, sweet clove and cinnamon. The tastes are cherry, red licorice, herbs and sweet spice, cola, and dill. The tannins are like fine satin and fruity and there is some wood and cola on the finish.

    August 7, 2014 - Big but not overwhelmingly so. Young and tight. This needs a few years but was worth checking in. Dark fruits, some vanillin, baking spices and big intensity. It's all there. Retry in a year.
