Wine Review – Peters Family Winery 2006 Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

This is a wine that I found through the California Wine Club and I just love it! Peters Family Winery is located in Sebastopol, California in the heart of Sonoma. They are negociants that have partnerships with world class vineyards. They focus their production on Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Pinot Noir.

Their 2006 vintage is an example of how I like my pinots! It is light in the glass and has beautiful aromas of earth, floral notes and black currant and cinnamon. On the palate you will find black cherry, mocha and vanilla. The finish is smooth and provides a hint of lavender. This is a very fruit forward wine with nice tannins and a great balance. This wine was excellent with our grilled salmon and I would suggest it for your Thanksgiving feast as well. There were a limited number of cases for this vintage so it might be hard to find. But if you do stumble across it, I would pick up at least two bottles, one for now and one for a few years down the road.
