Articles About The Winery SF
2013 The Winery SF North Coast Pinot Noir
14.1% alc., 1,700 cases, $29.99. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. The nose offers scents of blueberry, blackberry, plum and leaf. The discreetly concentrated black raspberry and blackberry fruits are overlaid with noticeable oak and backed by weighty tannins which surface on the finish. A little better integrated and enjoyable the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Score: 87. Reviewed July 12, 2015 ARTICLE »
2013 The Winery SF Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
14.1% alc., 200 cases, $40. Sourced from a vineyard near the border of Los Carneros. clones 115, 667 and 777. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Very shy berry mix on the nose which fails to open much even when tasted the following day. Tasty mid weight flavors of black cherry, black raspberry and cedary oak with a riff of savory herbs in the background. Nicely composed with balanced tannins and some finishing intensity. Score: 88.

2012 The Winery SF North Coast Pinot Noir
14.1% alc., $30. From a San Francisco urban winery located on San Francisco’s historic Treasure island. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Bright aromas of cherry, strawberry, rose petal and briar initially, fading somewhat over time in the glass. A cherry jubilee with hints of black raspberry, spice, and savory herbs. The texture is satiny, the wine is open and giving, the tannins are soft, and the clinging finish satisfies. Score: 89. Reviewed August 15, 2014 ARTICLE »
