Quick Sip: Flowers 2007 Andreen-Gale Pinot Noir
As part of MUSEXPO, a four day conference in Hollywood, California, that showcases more than 40 international music artists, I had the pleasure of participating in a virtual Twitter Taste-Live event. The event was put together by Joel Quigley, co-founder of Creative Furnace, and was held last month. One of the wines that received two purple thumbs up amongst the wine blogger panelists and tasters at my home, was the Flowers 2007 Andreen-Gale Pinot Noir. Flowers Vineyard and Winery is a Sonoma Coast producer that specializes in estate-grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The 2007 Andreen-Gale Pinot Noir is 100% estate fruit that’s farmed using organic and sustainable practices and grown in some of the coolest regions of the Sonoma Coast appellation.
Flowers 2007 Andreen-Gale Pinot Noir
The 2007 Flowers Andreen-Gale Pinot Noir conveys balance, delicacy, and elegance. The wine displays a brilliant ruby color and exudes black cherry and spice aromas with pretty perfumed floral notes and touches of citrus peel and tea leaf. The palate is smooth with a velvety texture, mild tannins, and nice acidity on the mid-palate that’s complimented by a lingering finish. The 2007 Flowers Andreen-Gale Pinot Noir retails for $55, clocks in at 13.5% ABV, and is suited to pair with a wide variety of foods. The owners, Walt and Joan Flowers, named the Andreen-Gale after their mothers, Dorothy Andreen and Ella Mae Gale. To quote the wine’s technical note, the owners said of this wine, “Our mothers would be proud.” My friends and I agree -- they sure would be proud. Cheers!
