Soft, supple and round, the soft tannins here make this a perfect choice for pleasure-seeking wine drinkers who want something delicious and fun now. Easy to pair with a variety of cuisines, or simply enjoyed on its own. It shows beautiful Sonoma County fruit, which is ripe and evenly balanced with flavors of fresh blackberries, raspberries and red fruits, followed by a touch of sweet smoke and spice. Pour a glass and enjoy!

I found a red fruit profile - strawberry and cherry, maybe some plum. Tannins were nicely balanced with the fruit, definitely soft on the edges. I served it with ribs I smoked, which was a pretty good combination. Price point might lead me to buy more.

Country:

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.

Sub-Region:

California

- 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).
