Product Description

As displayed in this week’s selection, the 2014 Beringer Estate Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast – a 93 point rated wine – is a fine representative of why New World wine drinkers are drawn to this style of Pinot Noir.

Let’s start with the weight of the wine, not a timid pale red, but a full throttle, full bodied round and soft wine.

But light on its feet – like a curvy dancer. Beringer is a well-known, California icon, a pillar of the American viticulture movement.
Given that it is warm out, and we most likely want to dine on lighter fare, those of us who still require red wine will find this spot on – the red berry flavors, subtle spice and mid-summer fruits all dominate. But its ethereal quality makes it fine in July.

You should know that Beringer has its own estate vineyards, from which the berries were handpicked. Because Pinot Noir is a fragile and temperamental grape, hand harvesting result’s in better fruit selection and fewer cases of bruised and abused skins.

Readers of Bacchus will recall that Sonoma, hugging the Pacific coast, is cooler and foggier, which is suitable for Burgundy style wines, such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The climate keeps sugars down and encourages a tenser, higher acidity wine, which when added to the varietal’s personality, gives it verve, flavor, spice, complexity and lastibility – it is why we always refer to this kind of wine as a true adult beverage, and not a wine-ade.

Our friends in the wine critic world love this bottling, heaping praise and administering 93 points – pretty good score for a California Pinot. With fruit harvested from the Grace Benoist Ranch, La Petite Étoile Vineyard as well as the illustrious Emeritus Vineyard in the Russian River Valley, sourcing was impeccable.

We were all over this wine when we knew we could have at it at vintage end pricing. We have the final few cases.
