Wild Ridge Pinot Noir 2011, Sonoma Coast, California

Wild Ridge Pinot Noir 2011, Sonoma Coast, California“Sonoma Coast” is a joke of an appellation among wine lovers, according to Dave McIntyre writing in the Washington Post this week. Instead, he says, discerning drinkers should look for wines produced on its western side.

Of the Sonoma Coast tag he said: “It covers too much of the county to be meaningful in terms of the climate or terroir and style of its wines. True Pinot fiends know to look for wines from the “west Sonoma Coast,” directly bordering the Pacific Ocean, where the terrain is often rugged and the sea keeps the air cool and foggy, as though it were weighting the vines to enforce restraint in the wines.

“The clue on the label with Wild Ridge is the word “Annapolis” — not the capital of Maryland but a small town in far northwest Sonoma County, far from the tasting room crowds. The wines from this area unfortunately are expensive, but they are worth seeking out.”

Price: $45
