Flowers Sonoma Coast 2011 Pinot Noir, $41.64-$48.99, 92 points, was a rainbow of red to orange hues with just a hint of violet with a very broad clear rim.
The nose was cranberry and red cherry with a lovely subtle cedar and an evolving floral note.
Light-plus bodied with good acidity and gentle, but accelerating tannin.
Flavors mirrored the nose with the addition of a lovely spearmint and cola.
Finished long on the trailing palate, pomegranate, plum, mild spice notes, and a well integrated 13.2% alcohol.
