Riddle Vineyard

Sonoma Coast

Riddle Vineyard is located in Green Valley of the West Sonoma Coast near the town of Occidental. Situated on a ridge 750ft above sea level with gentle north facing slopes, the vineyard overlooks many of the iconic Pinot noir vineyards of the region. Mornings tend to be foggy, yet the fog burns off fairly early allowing the vineyard to be drenched in warm sun the rest of the day. Planted in 2008 at a high density with 3.5’ x 6’ spacing upon exceptional Goldridge soils, the vine roots stretch deep in the soils looking for nutrients and water. This provides for deep and complex flavors in the grapes. Riddle is planted to a mixture of Pinot noir clones 115, Pommard and a distinctive Mt. Eden clone, which was taken as original bud wood from a prominent vineyard planted along California’s Central Coast.

Each of the four clones of Riddle Vineyard were picked and vinified separately. Mt. Eden clone provides the backbone of this blend, with layers of rich, dark fruit. Pommard, 115 and 828 add bright fruit, finesse and structure. The resulting blend is a captivating and inviting mix of classic new world Pinot noir flavors and textures.
