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. This location provides pure western exposure and constant wind and fog funneled in from the Pacific Ocean. This cooling influence, combined with well-drained, volcanic soils planted to the Pommard clone, produces a distinctive Pinot noir defined primarily by notes of earth and game, with fruit in an intriguing secondary role.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine’s signature earth and mushroom notes shine in the 2017 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 percent whole cluster fermentation, the 2017 is exceptionally complex and pleasurable in its youth and promises to reward cellaring as well.
