2010 Ridgetop Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

2010 Ridgetop Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

Surrounded by redwoods at approximately 1100 feet above the Pacific, the salty sea air and ocean breezes are ever present, with thick fog receding each day to present ideal ripening conditions for Pinot noir. The vines grow in Goldridge loam soils and a collection of old silt, sandstone and remnants of ancient seabed. We blended Pinot noir clones 777, 115, and 667 from separately fermented lots to produce this wine with exotic red and orange fruit aromas overlaying a bold strength, concentrated flavors, and lush, full mouthfeel.

First Vintage: 2009 Release: Fall Cases Produced: 225 $59.00

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.
