BOARS' VIEW

SONOMA COAST

stunning sonoma coast

Our love for Cabernet spans decades, our passion for Pinot Noir runs to our very core. We have long admired and enjoyed the lush, richly flavored, and bright Pinot Noirs from California’s Sonoma Coast. In 2007, we, along with good friends David and Judy Steiner became the proud owners of a phenomenal parcel of land, two ridgelines in from the Sonoma coastline. Thanks to the vineyard management prowess of Ulises Valdez and winemaking excellence of Thomas Rivers Brown, what started out as a grassy, untamed hilltop where wild boars roamed freely, has been transformed into a world-class Sonoma Coast vineyard, our Boars’ View.

2019 Boars’ View BDR Pinot Noir

FORT ROSS - SEAVIEW | SONOMA COAST

For the inaugural vintage of this wine, we selected specific barrels to create a dark complex Pinot Noir full of fruit, spice and structure. In the glass, this wine exhibits a nearly opaque purple-red hue. Waves of aromas suggest red licorice, pomegranate reduction, pennyroyal mint and lavender oil. The bold, dynamic palate suggests notes of macerated boysenberry, cedar shavings, black cherry, oolong tea and crushed river rock. The entry of this wine starts with a fruit-forward expression and develops more structure and tertiary notes mid-palate, finishing with a pretty, floral quality. This wine is easily enjoyable now with its abundance of fruit and great natural balance and acidity. — Winemaker, Thomas Brown

2019 Boars’ View Estate Pinot Noir

FORT ROSS - SEAVIEW | SONOMA COAST

Vivacious and exotic, this bold Pinot Noir expresses the best attributes of its coastal, rugged hillside vineyard location. The wine displays a brilliant purple hue in the glass. A crescendo of aromas suggests notes of clove, black licorice, cranberry skin, and mint oil. The silky palate is layered with complex notes of spice dusted bramble fruit, lavender, kirsch, star anise, and plum reduction. With a mouth-watering acid framework and exotic spice lingering through the very long finish, this vintage has all the best qualities this site provides. — Thomas Rivers Brown

2019 Boars’ View Estate Chardonay

SONOMA COAST

In the glass, this wine radiates a deep golden hue reminiscent of royal antiquities. There is a concert of aromas that emerge in waves, suggesting polished brass, flowering jasmine, lemon curd, white pepper and lilac. The palate features an array of decadent flavors. Notes of lanolin, crème brulée, honeysuckle, lychee, lime pith and white peach interact in harmony. The wine offers a very sleek, coating trajectory hallmarked by a wealth of rich Chardonnay flavor and complimentary new French oak. — Thomas Rivers Brown
