Sonoma County, California, United States, WINE

Buy wines from the United States at Woodland Hills Wine Co.

Just west of the more famous Napa Valley lie the wine-growing regions of Sonoma County, California's largest AVA and home to numerous sub-AVAs. The Sonoma Coast AVA, and it's sub-AVAs of Fort-Ross Seaview, Russian River Valley, and Green Valley produce world-class Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah, while the hotter climates of Knight's Valley and Alexander Valley, including the Dry Creek and Rockpile AVAs, produce some of the best Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon in California. Due to its sheer size, no other wine region in the U.S. encompasses such a wide variety of landscapes and micro-climates.

The yin to Napa's yang, Sonoma County is a quiet, agrarian region where orchards once dominated the scene. There is very little, if any, of the pomp and circumstance of Napa to be found in Sonoma County. It's three main sub-AVAs, Northern Sonoma, Sonoma Mountain, Sonoma Coast and Sonoma Valley all boast distinct terroir, but all three also share a kindred air of laid back relaxation.

Verite Le Desir Sonoma County 2013  (#328300)

Cabernet/Bordeaux Blends from Sonoma County, California

[ 99 points Robert Parker: The 2013 Le Désir represents 2,500 cases. This is the softest of the three wines in 2013, and this blend of 61% Cabernet Franc, 23% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec emerges with more than half of the cuvée coming from Hillsides in Alexander Valley, 37% from Chalk Hill and the rest tiny dollops from Bennett Valley and Knights Valley. Opaque purple, like its siblings, the wine is showing incredible floral, blueberry and espresso notes, exotic Asian spices, velvety texture, a supple, multilayered mouthfeel and incredible finish, with incense and licorice. This is magnificent young wine, with a good 40-50 years of upside potential. Pierre Seillan is justifiably proud of what he has achieved, and his first vintage of Vérité was only 1998, but they go from strength to strength. Drink 2015-2065.
