2021 Riddle Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

2021 Riddle Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

Riddle Vineyard is located near Occidental in a rugged section of the West Sonoma Coast. It is a pleasure to visit, as the vines are kept tidy and the views across the foggy valley are breathtaking. James Riddle gives each vine special attention, clipping shoots to the wires to maximize sun exposure and making several passes through the vines to keep only the top quality grapes. Mt. Eden clone provides a foundation of robust berry flavors and rich, silky texture. Clone 115 and a small lot of Pommard clone were blended in to balance the 2021 vintage wine. The resulting wine offers intriguing bramble berry fruit flavors, bright concentration and silky tannins that lengthen the finish.
