2011 Flowers "Perennial" Sonoma Coast Red Blend

SKU #1161860 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Dark red. Musky blackberry and cherry pit scents are complicated by notes of licorice, underbrush and mocha. Offers sappy dark berry and bitter cherry flavors that take on a tart edge with air, along with a touch of rhubarb. Finishes with good cut, grip and gentle tannins, leaving a note of orange marmalade behind.  (6/2014)

K&L Notes

The 2011 Flowers Perennial Red Sonoma Coast is a fascinating blend of 48% Pinot Noir, 44% Syrah, 4% Pinot Meunier, 3% Dolcetto and 1% Chardonnay, for good measure, with aromatics of wild blueberries, sage, and snappy red fruit aromas. Aged in 100% French oak for 12 months. The palate is full of delicate berry fruit, hints of lavender, wet earth and mineral notes. The wine has an elegant feel, with complex layers of fruit nicely framed by racy acidity and soft floral aromas. A perfect food wine, it will marry well with fish, pork or roasted vegetables.

If you are looking for a unique wine with a style and character all its own, try this blend from Flowers! Primarily Pinot Noir and Syrah, this wine exhibits an elegant nose of strawberry, clove and a hint of oak, on the palate a symphony of red fruits, and a long spicy finish. This is probably one of the most interesting wines from an incredible producer.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world. Click for a list of bestselling items from the United States.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Sonoma County

- Second in fame only to Napa, this "other" valley offers just about every climate and topography imaginable. From its cool and fog-enshrouded coastal regions on the far west, to the sprawling Alexander Valley on the boarder of Napa and the many little dips and peaks in between, Sonoma has been a vital wine-grape-growing region since the mid 1800s. Important sub-AVAs include Chalk Hill (known for chardonnay and sauvignon blanc), Dry Creek Valley (where zin is king) Knights Valley (largely cabernet land), Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast (both celebrated pinot and chardonnay zones).
