2019 Riddle Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

2019 Riddle Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

Riddle Vineyard is situated in a rugged section of the West Sonoma Coast at the top of a coastal ridge with a gentle slope. James Riddle gives each vine special attention, clipping shoots to the wires to maximize sun exposure and making several passes through the vines each vintage to orient clusters and create the best opportunity to produce exceptional fruit. The Mt. Eden clone provides a foundation of robust berry flavors and rich, silky texture. Two additional clones, 115 and Pommard, balance out the 2019 single-vineyard bottling, adding complexity and length. It provides intriguing bramble berry fruit flavors, bright concentration and silky tannins.
