Where It's From

District / Sonoma County

View more wines from Sonoma County

Sonoma County, just north of San Francisco is one of California's most famous wine districts. While sometimes overshadowed by the reputation of its rival and neighbor, Napa Valley, Sonoma County has a longer history of viticulture and is twice the size of the former.

Thanks in part to a strong diversity of climates within Sonoma County, the district is home to outstanding examples from a whole host of grapes. Sonoma County Pinot Noirs are considered some of the finest in the state, and the Dry Creek Valley Zinfandels are remarkable. Chardonnays come in a variety of styles thanks to the varying temperatures in Sonoma County, and Cabernets and Merlots also thrive here.

Some of the more celebrated viticultural areas in Sonoma County include Sonoma Mountain, Sonoma Coast, Chalk Hill, Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, and Carneros (parts of which fall within Napa Valley).

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

Country / United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

Herold by Mark Herold | Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 / 750 ml.

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
2011 / 750 ml.

Item #: 79055

RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2013
The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Herold by Mark Herold is a significant step down in quality from the 2010, simply because of the vintage conditions. Although much lighter, it displays a dark ruby/purple color, attractive ripeness, and notions of berry fruit, black raspberries and blueberries, bouquet garni, and earthy notes. Medium-bodied with a good but uninspiring finish, it is a successful wine for the vintage, and is best drunk over the next decade.

Sloan | Napa Valley Red Wine 2011 / 750 ml.

Napa Valley Red Wine
2011 / 750 ml.

Item #: 82047

VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2014
The 2011 Sloan Estate has turned out beautifully. Readers will find more of an Old World flavor profile and sense of structure in the 2011, yet all the elements are very nicely balanced. Savory herbs, crushed flowers, lavender, mint and mocha all add lift to the perfumed dark red cherry fruit in this gracious, super-expressive Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine. The great sites always come through, even in the most difficult of vintages. I remember visiting Sloan Estate during the 2011 harvest and seeing first hand the attention to detail here. It’s no surprise the 2011 has turned out quite nicely.

Bettina Bryant 2011 / 750 ml.

2011 / 750 ml.

Item #: 78573

VN92+92+ pts. - Vinous - Nov 2013
The 2011 Bettina is a bit closed in on itself. Dark red cherry, plum, licorice, smoke and tobacco emerge over time. Today the 2011 is a bit compact, which is not surprising considering the vintage. With time in the glass, the 2011 starts to find its typical explosive, dark personality, but today some slightly angular contours remain. The blend is 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.
RP90+90–92 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st Oct 2013
The 2011 Bettina is a strong effort in this challenging vintage. Notes of licorice, black olives, black and red currants, spicy wood and underbrush are all present in this medium-bodied, fleshy, open-knit, charming wine. Drink it over the next 10–12 years.

Asterisk | Napa Valley Red Wine 2011 / 750 ml.

Napa Valley Red Wine
2011 / 750 ml.

Item #: 82048

VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Nov 2013
The 2011 ASTERISK is a drop-dead gorgeous wine, especially for a year that was so challenging. Freshly cut flowers, mint, super-ripe red berries and crushed rocks are totally alive in the glass in a wine that stands out for its energy, vibrancy and delineation. Fine grained tannins support the polished, impeccable finish. The 2011 Asterisk is a bit medium in body by Sloan standards, but it is notable for its balance and class. Sweet tobacco, licorice and savory herbs linger on the intensely aromatic, high-toned finish.

JD9292 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 7/21/2023
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve takes on a more luxurious sheen and is forward with toasted bourbon spice, cedar, menthol, and cassis. Full-bodied, with ripeness throughout, notes of juicy blackberry, turned earth, and mocha fill the palate. It’s a bolder, more toasty style to drink over the next 4–6 years. (Audrey Frick)
SP8888 pts. - Wine Spectator - Sep 22, 2022
Overtly toasted, though this has a good core of plum and blackberry puree behind that, with violet and anise notes trying to peak through on the graphite-edged finish. For fans of the style. Drink now through 2025. 1,940 cases made. (James Molesworth)

JD9090 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - June 14, 2019
Lastly, the 2016 Zinfandel Reserve checks in as 85% Zinfandel, 13% Petite Sirah, and 2% Syrah that spent a full 20 months in 60% new French oak. Tons of black fruits, scorched earth, singed cedar, and chocolate notes emerge from this effort, and it’s sweetly fruited, medium to full-bodied, and packs plenty of fruit while staying balanced. There’s some obvious oak here yet it plays well with the spicy Zinfandel fruit and this certainly offers pleasure. This was a great vintage for Zinfandel, and you see the quality here. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 19th Dec 2019
The 2016 Zinfandel Reserve Dry Creek Valley has a deep ruby-purple color. The nose offers aromas of blueberries, boysenberry, raspberries and cherries with touches of apricot, cocoa, star anise and a spicy current. The medium to full-bodied palate offers loads of ripe fruits with firm, chewy tannins, juicy acidity and a long, sweet baking spice-laced finish. 640 cases were made.
