2006 Adobe Road Winery Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
15.3% alc., 1350 cases, $39. Owned by Kevin and Debra Buckler, this winery is located in the cool Sonoma Coast town of Petaluma at 1995 S. McDowell Blvd. Founded in 1999, production is 5,000 cases of Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The interesting tasting room features a display of racing cars (Kevin is a well-known sports car racer). The winemaker is Frank Dusak. The 2005 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir was one of the top wines at the 2008 Pinot Noir Shootout and sold out quickly. · The wine pulls you in with attractive aromas of wild berries, earth, pepper, oak and a nice touch of barnyard. Dark-fruited with a strong tug of oak that competes with the fruit. Softly textured with a clean finish that leaves a little heat in its wake. Reviewed October 1, 2008 ARTICLE »
2006 Adobe Road Winery O’Neel Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
15.3% alc., 250 cases, $48 · Gregarious nose bursting with rich black cherries, well-toasted oak and oak spice. The earth-dusted and oak-imbibed dark stone fruits are discreetly concentrated with tannins that are soft and supple. The balance is admirable with alcohol that is well integrated.

2004 Herrerias Herrerias Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
13.8% alc., $24. · This is not a terribly complex wine, but is perfectly fine. Cherries are foremost in the nose and flavors. There is a little funk (what I call dirty diaper but in a good way) among the aromas. Reviewed January 15, 2007 ARTICLE »
2004 Adobe Road Herrerias Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
14.3% alc., 246 cases, $35. Winemaking here is traditional for California Pinot Noir. Aging was carried out for 19 months in 50% new French oak. · This wine is one fine cherry bomb. Scrumptious ripe cherries in the nose and on the palate with a hint of spice and herbs. Light to medium in body and elegant in style, this Pinot finishes with a lively kick of acidity and a lingering note of sweet oak. Hi-octane. Reviewed January 15, 2007 ARTICLE »
