“This oh-so satisfying new Pinot impresses from the start with palate-coating red fruit including cranberry and enticing raspberry cream. Alluring baking spices add to the complexity and left us begging for another sip. This is a delightfully fresh tasting Pinot that will enhance a wide array of menus tonight through 2026.” - California Wine Advisors

“There are 200 cases of the 2016 Pinot Noir Dierke which comes from a site on the Sonoma Coast and saw 10% stems and one-third new oak. It has a beautiful forest floor and pine needle character as well as ripe raspberries, cherry, and passion fruit tones. Medium-bodied, silky, and incredibly elegant, with sweet tannins, it's another ballerina wine from this team that shines for its grace and complexity.” - Jeb Dunnuck

“The 2016 Pinot Noir Dierke has developed into a gorgeous wine…there is a crystalline purity to the 2016 that is impossible to miss. There is so much to look forward to. Graphite, crushed rocks, game, menthol and lavender gradually open up in the glass…” - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Winery Notes: “The deep ruby color of the 2018 Dierke Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir hints at what is to come. Opening with ripe red cherry, dried cranberry, and dusty raspberry, the bright fruit ushers in a brooding, structured intensity. An earthy forest floor character mingles with savory notes of cinnamon, cola nut, tobacco leaf, and a hint of dark chocolate. A touch of flint minerality reveals itself alongside delicate lilacs balanced by grippy tannins. Thoroughly charismatic in its youth, the 2018 Dierke will continue to gracefully reveal its many layers for those patient enough to learn its secrets.”
