2006 Kanzler Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.6% alc., $50. The Kanzler Vineyard is on an east-facing slope of a small valley in the coastal hills between Bodega Bay and Sebastopol. Foggy mornings, warm days, and afternoon breezes are ideal for Pinot Noir. Farmed by Stephen and Lynda Kanzler. The winemaker is Greg Stach. · Dark red cherry, strawberry, oak spice and some herbs in the mix as well. Plenty of fruit but not flabby or overdone. Full of charm with a soft, velvety texture, refined tannins, and a clean finish. A seamless wine brimming with juiciness. Highly recommended. Retail distribution and mailing list sales.
