2016 Rodgers Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

2016 Rodgers Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

Rodgers Creek Vineyard sits high on a ridge in the heart of the Petaluma Gap, one of the coolest and foggiest growing regions in Sonoma County, making the site well suited to growing exceptional Pinot noir. This wine’s signature earth and mushroom notes shine in this 2016 bottling, thanks to the combination of unique soils and dominance of the Pommard clone. Bright red fruit flavors, smooth texture, and rich, silky tannins complement the earthy tones. Aided by 15% whole cluster fermentation, the 2016 is exceptionally complex and pleasurable in its youth but promises to reward cellaring as well.

First Vintage: 2008 Release: Spring Cases Produced: 800 $48.00

Rodgers Creek Vineyard

Sonoma Coast, Petaluma Gap

Rodgers Creek Vineyard sits at 300 feet above sea level, between Sonoma and Petaluma, in the teeth of the wind and fog of the Petaluma Gap. The vines grow in light, chalky volcanic ash soils in steep inclines. This causes natural vine stress and gives the wine high concentration levels.
