California Pinot Noir For many years, people didn't think you could make great Pinot Noir in California. Have those people ever been proven wrong!

You have to look for the coolest climates - the Sonoma Coast, Carneros (just off San Pablo Bay), the Russian River Valley and the hills above Santa Barbara are the types of places creating great Pinot Noir. These areas allow Pinot Noir have enough hang time (not ripening too quickly) to develop great flavors.
Look at Iron Horse, in the Green Valley, or Handley, in the Anderson Valley, for the kind of elegance Pinot Noir is capable of. Look to Saintsbury for a Pinot with the earthy, mushroomy flavors that make Pinot Noir such a versatile food wine. And Flowers will show you all the power and concentration that California winemakers can get from this most finicky grape.
