2016 Flowers Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1345176 91 points Robert Parker's 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. (LPB)  (4/2018)

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. (AG)  (7/2018)

Jancis Robinson

 More black fruit than red, with a lovely aniseed complexity on the palate. Semi-firm tannin, medium body, nicely integrated acidity to crisp up the finish. Clove spice on the length – this seems like it has much further to go. (RH) 17+/20 points  (3/2018)
