2018 Rodgers Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir


This single-vineyard pinot noir offers captivating scents of ripe red fruits and wild berries blended with dried rose petals and savory spices. On the palate, the lavish flavors of blackberry and pomegranate are lifted with harmonious notes of wild sage, cinnamon and a kiss of oak. As the intensity of this young wine expands in the glass, the earthy, fruit-driven flavors and firm tannins are balanced with a combination of velvety texture, bright acidity, and spicy notes that linger on the finish.

In the heart of the Petaluma Gap, cool evening air and fog from the Pacific cool down the Southernmost part of Sonoma. Well-draining, volcanic soils provide a terroir that makes for uniquely styled, bold pinot noir.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”WINEMAKING” tab_id=”1497942435768-a2771e4b-8863″][vc_column_text]The 2018 growing season began cooler than usual for Sonoma County, leading to longer bloom time for grapevines. Moderate summer temperatures with fewer heat spikes than previous vintages allowed for a relaxed pace, excellent development of flavors and retention of natural acidity. After the grapes were hand-picked, sorted and destemmed, they were cold soaked for three days prior to fermentation. Free run juice as a result of fermentation was transferred into 50% new French oak barrels and barrel-aged for 18 months with minimal racking prior to bottling.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”FOOD PAIRINGS” tab_id=”1497942617493-09f53e22-1d0f”][vc_column_text]Pair this complex pinot noir with earthy cheeses, roasted vegetables, grilled salmon, duck breast with cherry sauce, pork chops with rosemary or slow-roasted lamb.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_tabs][/vc_column][/vc_row]
