2013 Rodgers Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

2013 Rodgers Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

Rodgers Creek Vineyard is well suited for growing Pinot noir. It sits high on a ridge right in the heart of the Petaluma Gap and takes the full brunt of wind and fog that define this cool climate zone. The vines grow in light, chalky volcanic ash soils on steep inclines. This causes natural vine stress and gives the wine high concentration levels. In 2013, we whole-cluster fermented 15% of the grapes to add aromatic complexity and verve. The resulting wine is a fabulous expression of the vineyard site and its unique soils. It is a showy wine – very expressive and forward, with smooth textures and a lingering finish. Distinctive aromas of mushroom and soy overlay layers of red fruit flavors, earth and hints of rosemary.
