2009 Ridgetop Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

2009 Ridgetop Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

The vines produce miniscule yields with concentrated flavors, provocative aromatics and silky texture as they struggle to grow in Goldridge loam soils and a collection of old silt, sandstone and remnants of ancient seabed. We blended clones 115, 667 and 777 from separately fermented lots to produce this wine with exotic red and orange fruit aromas overlaying a bold strength and complexity at its core.

Ridgetop Vineyard

West Sonoma Coast

Located just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean in the town of Annapolis, and sitting at 1,100 feet above sea level, Ridgetop Vineyard is Sojourn’s most coastal vineyard site. The maritime influence effectively moderates high temperatures during summer and fall, while the vineyard’s position on the eastern side of the first coastal ridge protects it from fog.
