Flowers Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is deep garnet color with ruby highlights. This Pinot Noir has expressive aromas of dark berry fruit, black tea, and dried cranberry with earthy nuances of oregano, spice and sweet tobacco. Delivering flavors of ripe plum, fig, orange and licorice this wine is bold; yet, graceful on the palate with supple tannins and a lingering coastal minerality on the finish.
The mild spring and cooler summer in Monterey County give a chance of our Pinot Noir grapes to achieve the optimum maturity with great balance of acidity and flavor, and with deep color that is characteristic of Arroyo Seco Pinot Noir. The red fruit brightens across the palate, picking up raspberry and spice are balance by the French toasted oak aromas. Soft and silky through the middle, this wine crescendo on the finish leaves a vibrant, juicy memory in the mouth, with proper acidity and a pleasant mouth-feel
A key signature of Amador County Zins is a brambly, wild berry character. Four Vines Maverick Zin packs plenty of bramble with notes of tobacco, leather and black pepper. Tannins are well integrated and the wine is nicely balanced. It’s full-bodied with enough acidity to pair well with food. Think big flavors and rich meats when serving this wine. Pour alongside smoked ribs, lamb or a juicy grilled steak.
