FLOWERS SONOMA COAST PINOT NOIR - 2004
Medium transparent red color with wonderful red berries, spice and oak on the nose. Cherry, raspberries and strawberries with minerality and hints of leather. Very soft and smooth but lacking a some complexity.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
I really like this wine and have had great experiences with Flowers Pinots in the past. I think the alcohol creeps up on the finish a tad and makes this wine not as enjoyable as it could be. Still, this is a very good effort. The brightness of the fruit and the bouquet are its strengths. Retails for $40 - $50 which makes this a very expensive offering and a questionable purchase.
