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.

"Pale ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Rodgers Creek Vineyard has understated Bing cherries, fresh raspberries and wild strawberries scents with subtle potpourri, fungi and forest floor suggestions. Medium bodied with a quiet intensity of red berry and earthy layers, it has a fine-grained texture and oodles of freshness, finishing on a compelling truffle laced note."
