  • August, 2013: SF Chronicle wine editor, Jon Bonné, takes a look at
    2011 Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast.  Here's what he has to say
    about the Waxwing Spring Hill Vineyard Pinot:  "Scott Sisemore
    tapped into the precipitous ripening potential found west of
    Petaluma, in the area's wind gap, for this effort from the Spring
    Hill Vineyard. A slight use of whole clusters comes through in a
    spicy aspect of black peppercorn and sage that's matched by plush,
    straightforward fruit flavors."  Find the full article here.

  • Our 2012 "Spring Hill Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir was
    reviewed in the Wine Enthusiast (90 pts):  The fruit is gigantic on
    this rich, full-bodied and expressive young Pinot Noir. It discloses
    an explosion of raspberries and cherries, along with zesty acidity
    and a jacket of smoky oak. The wine is delicious to drink now with
    Pinot-friendly fare, such as grilled salmon or lamb. —S.H.
