Top 10 wines in the US press

Jon Bonné recommends a Pinot Noir that’s a “great balance of style and vintage”, while Will Lyons picks out “an absolutely stunning wine”.

US PressIn looking at Californian wines from 2011, Bonné wrote in the San Francisco Chronicle: “At least as California Pinot Noir goes, consider 2011 the year of the great schism. I was reminded of this schism the other day when discussing the vintage with several winemakers, most of them working out on the far reaches of the Sonoma coast.”

He added: “They could not have been more pleased with 2011. This is, shall we say, a minority opinion. For 2011 was the year without a summer.”

When it came to the actual wines, Bonné wrote: “The best of the 2011 Pinots from the Sonoma Coast are radiant, almost iridescent wines; they quietly glow with their flavours more than directly state them, as the best Pinot Noir should.”

    Check out the Pinot reviewed…. Just good to read tasting notes and see how they describe the wine characteristics.
