2005 Flowers "Sea View Ridge" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1074944 94 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Sea View is Flowers' most recent planting, a southeast-facing ridge adjacent to Frances Thompson. Sea View is both higher up (1,850 feet) and closer to the Pacific, with soils of sedimentary rock mixed with lighter loams. The wine is simpler than the Frances Thompson, though no less elegant, lavishly draped in rich red fruit that marries completely with the oak influence, making those flavors part of its own. Aside from the clarity, and the natural, relaxed structure of the tannin, what's impressive about the wine is how it uses oxygen to gain freshness and subtlety over the course of several days. Decant it for any fresh catch. Inner quote mark (4/2008)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium red. Smoky red berry aromas are complemented by cured meat, sassafras and blood orange. There's nothing heavy or loose about this wine, which boasts sharply defined, fresh strawberry and raspberry flavors, with good mineral snap adding vivacity. An elegant, juicy, nicely balanced style. Inner quote mark (6/2008)

K&L Notes

Planted in 1998, Sea View Ridge is closer to the ocean than the estate's older Camp Meeting Ridge Vineyard. At elevations from 1,400 to 1,800 feet, Sea View is well above the fog belt.
