2010 Pinot Noir
Sangiacomo Vineyard, Sonoma Coast
The Sangiacomo Vineyard along Roberts Road produced exceptional fruit again in 2010. The cool Spring season delayed bud break a few weeks, and the ocean breezes and Petaluma Gap fog moderated temperatures throughout the growing season, allowing for long hang times, slow ripening, and loads of natural acidity and freshness. In 2009 we added Swan and Pommard clones to our traditional blend of clones 115 and 777, and we loved the resulting complexity and earthiness. We maintained this four clone recipe for the 2010 vintage, adding a bit more 777 from a new block to the blend. As in 2009, clones 115 and 777 represent the majority, while Swan and Pommard clones are blended in smaller quantities to add layers of complexity.
The 2010 Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot noir seduces your nose with aromas of strawberry and orange peel overlaying a core of dark cherry and earthy forest floor. Textures are creamy and silky with slightly more structure than previous vintages. The finish is long, with lingering hints of cherry and spice. This perennial favorite wine is sure to be a quick sell-out once again.
