Join us Thursday, October 22nd at 6:30pm for a Zoom tasting of the wines of Flowers Vineyards from Sonoma with the winemaker, Chantal Forthun. For nearly 30 years Flowers has been growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on the rugged Sonoma Coast. It’s a challenge but they believe great things rarely come easy. Through all that time their goal has stayed the same — make exceptional wines with balance, elegance, and respect for the land. They believe nature knows best and that the less they interfere, the more the authentic voice of the land is allowed to emerge. So they step back and let Mother Nature do what she does best — organic farming in the vineyard for healthy soil; and minimal intervention in the cellar to showcase the purity of the fruit and the expression of the land.

Thursday's tasting will include these three wines, tasted in this order:
2019 Flowers Vineyards Rose, $29.99
Elegant and distinct with aromas of peach, strawberry, and subtle hints of rose petal. Bursts of fresh citrus colorfully drive the palate and are balanced with flavors of nectarine and stone fruit. A silky entrance coupled with fresh and uplifting acidity leaves you with signature coastal expressiveness.
Purchase the Rose here:
2017 Flowers Vineyards Chardonnay, $29.99
Intense and fresh aromas of citrus and white flower are balanced with pure fruit flavors and chalky texture. Delicate oak notes are combined with persistent acidity, minty graphite in the palate, leading to a refined, long and juicy finish.
Purchase the Chardonnay here:
2017 Flowers Vineyards Pinot Noir, $34.99
Inviting and expressive aromas of bright red cherry and lifted savory spice are balanced with hints of ground clove spice and graham cracker. Nuances of graphite and sea salt bring another dimension that comes together with a bright acidity driving a long, lively finish.
