(3)

Flowers Vineyards Pinot Noir 2014
90  Wine & Spirits 
Wine & Spirits 90 "This iteration of Flowers’ multi-vineyard blend from western Sonoma is a bit lush compared to some other vintages, perhaps due to the warmth of the 2014 growing season, yet it’s stitched together by brisk coastal acidity and the tannins of fruit grown on sandy ridgetops. Its
