95 points - limited
A fantastic small-production Pinot from Flower's Estate Seaview Vineyard. Limited.
95 Points 'Cellar Selection' Wine Enthusiast: "The most notable thing about this Pinot is its intensity of flavor. A blend of both new Dijon clones and older California selections of Pinot Noir, it is stunning with flavors of raspberries, cherries and Dr. Pepper. It’s a balanced, elegant wine with vibrant texture , but needs time to truly shine. Hold till at least 2017."
Brand new release of Flowers's highly sought-after Camp Meeting Ridge vineyard Chardonnay! Limited time only.
95 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2018 Chardonnay Camp Meeting Ridge is a wine of pure and total class. Bright citrus, crushed rocks, white flowers, mint and a touch of slate infused the 2018 with striking layers of nuance. Light on its feet and wonderfully complex, the 2018 has so much to offer. It is also one of the most pedigreed and nuanced Chardonnays I have tasted from Flowers."
This bottling is sourced entirely from Flowers' organic and biodynamically farmed Camp Meeting Ridge Estate Vineyard. Planted in 1991, these "older" vines are producing some of their most exciting and interesting Chardonnays today. Given the extremes of this site, each small block ripens at its own pace.
With a brilliant golden hue, lively aromas of lemon verbena, lime zest, honey suckle, chamomile, and citrus blossom dominate the distinctive nose. The palate is precise and focused, driven by mouthwatering acidity and framed by flinty, coastal minerality – a vivid expression of Flowers' Estate vineyard.
The new Flowers 2018 Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast now available.
93 Points Jeb Dunnuck: " Moving to the reds, the appellation 2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast was just about completely destemmed (2% stems) and spent 10 months in 18% new French oak. Lots of spice box, earthy forest floor, cherries, and redcurrant notes define the bouquet, and it's medium-bodied and balanced, with good acidity and a great finish. As with everything from this estate, it's impeccably made and high-quality."
90 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2018 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is pretty, aromatic and super-elegant. Crushed flowers, dried cherry, mint, sage, cedar and tobacco are some of the many notes that develop in the glass. The 2018 is perfumed, light on its feet and exquisitely beautiful—all qualities that make it a terrific choice for drinking over the next handful of years. These are some of the most intriguing wines I have tasted from Flowers in some time. Winemaker Chantal Forthun and consultant Jeremy Seysses of Domaine Dujac are focusing on fewer bottlings, and that seems to be paying off."
