2015 Ridgetop Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

2015 Ridgetop Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

Ridgetop Vineyard is owned by Fred Schrader and Thomas Rivers Brown and is located in the remote coastal mountains along the northern Sonoma Coast near Annapolis. Ulises Valdez tends to vineyard diligently, and the resulting wines showcase his high-quality farming as well as this unique vineyard site.

2015 brought miniscule yields with tiny clusters. This wine offers explosive aromas of red and tropical fruits and burnt orange overlaying a bold strength and complexity at its core. The texture is rich and supple. It is a pleasure to drink! The vineyard is located high above the Pacific where ocean breezes are ever present and the vines struggle, resulting in concentrated flavors, provocative aromatics and silky texture.

First Vintage: 2009 Release: Fall Cases Produced: 200 $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.
