91 Points, Wine Advocate - The 2016 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast is pale ruby-purple colored with
a pronounced red currants and cranberries-scented nose with hints of rose hips, raspberry leaves
and dried herbs plus a waft of fungi. Medium-bodied, delicately fruited and with beautifully pure cranberry and earth-inspired layers, it has a firm frame of grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with an herbal lift.
91 Points, Vinous - The 2016 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is another terrific appellation-level wine from Flowers. Medium in body,
the 2016 is a model of total grace and understatement.
Game, incense, tobacco, dried flowers
and licorice add layers of nuance throughout. The tannins are a bit coarse, especially for the size of the wine, but that is a relatively small critique given how far things have come here in recent years. Flowers works with purchased fruit for the Sonoma Coast bottling.
Medium ruby in color. Aromas of cranberry, deep raspberry and Santa Rosa plum are woven with top-notes of anise and coastal redwood spice. The palate is perfectly balanced with flavors of cherry and peach pith, broad tannins and textures of stone fruit flesh, together complimenting the bright acidity that leads into a long, fresh finish.
