There's talk on the street; it sounds so familiar 
Great expectations, everybody's watching you 
People you meet, they all seem to know you 
Even your old friends treat you like you're something new 

- New Kid in Town, The Eagles

There's a new kid in town when it comes to Sonoma Pinot Noir and her name is Deborah Bennett. A protege of Greg La Follette (#13 on our recent list of the most influential winemakers in the US), Bennett's label, Cerridwen Wines, launched in 2013 with the 2010 Van der Kamp Vineyards Sonoma Mountain Pinot Noir. Out of the gate it received acclaim with a 90 pt rating from Pinot Report. Having enjoyed the wine myself, I can attest it's a worthy entry on the list of Sonoma Pinot Noirs you need to try.

It's priced at $45 per bottle. Those interested in purchasing Cerridwen Pinot Noir can order by phone at 707-337-9011, or contact Cerridwen via their website,
