Flowers Pinot Noir

2003 Flowers Pinot Noir ($50)

“With a passion for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Joan and Walt Flowers have developed 80 acres of vineyard on the wild and rugged Sonoma Coast. Camp Meeting Ridge and the new Flowers Ranch are both located less than 2 miles from the Pacific, with the steep hillside vineyards at elevations ranging from 1350 feet to 1875 feet. The vineyards are warm sites in a cool climate, producing grapes with intense flavor and color. The Flowers' gravity-flow / gas assist winery is outfitted with many high-tech features allowing the wine to be made in a low-tech, minimal intervention way.”

Out Tasting Notes: This bottle is not easy to find, but if you like Pinot Noirs, its definitely one to keep an eye out for. Flowers has become one of California’s cult wineries and you have to get on their mailing list to purchase their wine direct. The 2003 Pinot was aged in 100 percent French Oak barrels and has a beautiful deep ruby color. An A+ Pinot.
