- Notizen des Weinguts: „Every Flowers wine is made to express the land where it was farmed. Our coastal proximity and high-elevation vineyards give our wine its distinct minerality and fresh acidity. Farmed sustainably, fermented with 100% native yeast and crafted with minimal intervention in the cellar, Flowers Pinot Noir is a pure expression of the rugged and extreme Sonoma Coast.
Red currents, earthy forest floor, bergamot and sea breeze. A balanced wine with persistent mid palate that is laced with acidity and tart cherry, finishing light and lifted with a twist of blood orange.“
- 91 Punkte Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE, Lisa Perrotti-Brown: „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.“
- 91 Punkte VINOUS, Antonio Galloni: „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.“

|Notizen des Weinguts:||Great winemaking begins with great farming. This belief is what initially led us to the remote coastal ridges of the extreme Sonoma Coast, and it continues to drive everything we do. From farming using a blend of organic and sustainable practices to fermenting our wine with 100% native yeast. We believe that the extreme conditions of vineyard sites should be embraced, not controlled and each wine should be a unique representation of place and time. It’s not the easy way to make wine, but we believe it’s the only way. Sustainable Farming Using a blend of organic and sustainable farming practices, we harness the true potential of our extreme vineyard sites. The grapes benefit from the influence of the nearby Pacific Ocean, which provides cool daytime breezes to ensure proper ripening and evening fog to guarantee lively acidity for freshness in the finished wines. Harvest Our harvest begins every fall beneath the moonlight. Given the extremes of our vineyard sites, each small block ripens at its own pace. Grapes are monitored for their ideal brix level and each cluster is picked by hand throughout the night and into the early morning to ensure fruit quality and freshness in the wine. MINIMAL INTERVENTION IN THE CELLAR Every winemaker has the opportunity intervene in the natural winemaking process to impact the color, flavor, aroma and texture of their wine – but at Flowers we do not. We want our wine to be a pure expression of our unique coastal terroir and the vintage. 100% NATIVE YEAST FERMENTATION Yeast is the magic in the winemaking process, as it is the catalyst for fermentation. And although there is natural yeast all around us, most wineries will purchase yeast strains from the store and use them to control the fermentation process. At Flowers, we use 100% native yeast in all our wines, thus relying on the wild yeast that gets carried in on the grapes from the vineyard for fermentation. We believe our yeast strain gives our wine a unique identity and in 2015 we began sending out samples for DNA fingerprinting. Unique & Pure We have been shocked to learn that we had a common strain of yeast throughout all of our wines that is carried in through our vineyards – and this strain is 100% unique to Flowers, meaning there is no genetic relationship to any commercial yeast on the market. Although using native yeast is uncommon, we believe that it is necessary to showcase the purity of our fruit and power of our vineyards.|
