Sean and Nicole Minor moved to California soon after graduating from college and quickly became enthralled with the wine industry. After working on the finance side at several wineries, including Beaulieu Vineyard, Sean starting taking enology classes at UC Davis to better understand grape farming and wine production. The Minors moved to Oregon to manage King Estate and became friends with Will Bucklin, the winemaker, who helped them to delve deeper into the science of winemaking. They moved back to California in 2001, further honed their skills at Renwood Winery, and Established Sean Minor (formerly known as Four Bears) in 2005. To this day, they source their grapes from the finest vineyards in AVAs all over California and remain committed to offering their customers premium wines at affordable prices.
The 2017 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is made from Dijon and Pommard clones grown in sandy/loam soils and is aged for 12 months in French oak, 20% of which is new. It is "medium-bodied with cherry, cola, plum, blueberry, and light toast flavors. It is well-structured and elegant, with lingering spicy/earthy notes and cherry flavors throughout the mid-palate. The vanilla and toast integrate well with the silky round tannins on the lengthy finish." (winery tasting notes)
The Pinot Noir was awarded 91 points from Wine Enthusiast Magazine: "Mint, sage and dried herb with a tease of lavender greet the nose in this floral, earthy and well-made wine, which continues to offer a whiff of baked bread. Crisp red fruit complements in brightness and crunch, with the tannins polished and supportive." (8/1/19)
