What people are saying about Côte West
John Gilman, View From the Cellar
2015 Pinot Noir, “La Cruz” Sonoma Coast
The wine offers up an excellent bouquet of cherries, beetroot, cinnamon, woodsmoke, raw cocoa, good soil tones and a hint of fresh dill in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and shows off a good structural chassis and impressive mid-palate depth, with ripe tannins, good focus and grip, lovely transparency and a long, nascently complex finish. This is a very good bottle in the making that needs some time in the cellar to start to really blossom, but the potential is self- evident and this is going to be a very good glass of wine with a bit of patience. 92 Points.
