2016 Sangiacomo Roberts Road Vineyard
The Roberts Road Vineyard is located at the base of the eastern foothills of the Sonoma Coast AVA in the Petaluma Gap. The gap pulls the ocean breeze in through the Russian River Valley where it rolls over the foothills, moderating the healthy amount of sun this vineyard gets from its southwestern exposure. Situated on well-drained gravelly soils of an ancient creek bed, the fruit achieves full maturity while retaining the softness of Pinot Noir.
Unrestrained aromatics of forest herbs, wild strawberry. This opulent expression of this single-vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir offers both an earthy richness and integrated red-fruit acidity. Smooth tannins build to a long finish.>
