Last week we visited the newRam's Gate Winery in Sonoma. It's an amazing 22,000 sq. ft. space with fantastic winesand even better food & wine pairings. We enjoyed all of the wines we tasted, particularly the Pinot Noir, described as "a textbook example of ‘North Coast’ Pinot Noir laden with ripe cherry, sarsaparilla & juicy raspberry fruit flavors with subtle stony earth, forest floor and musk characters. The wine's mouth-feel is driven by an abundance of velour-like tannins and richness of alcohol. Backed by forest floor, mushrooms, cedar and earth."
The small plate food pairings are also excellent. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, "the food experience is one of the best reasons to visit an already exceptional destination."
Easy to find on Route 121, Ram's Gate is the perfect place to start or end a day of wine tasting in Sonoma.
