2017 Sangiacomo Roberts Road Vineyard
The Sangiacomo family works closely with us to farm Block 20 to our exact specifications. Vineyard Manager Ned Horton walks the site at the base of the eastern foothills of the Sonoma Coast AVA adjacent to the Gap's Crown. The Pacific Ocean breeze rolls over this area moderating the sun's impact allowing the fruit to fully mature while retaining gorgeous softness in this delicate varietal.
This wine highlights the Petaluma Gap bright fruit character, especially fresh dark plum and red cherry. It's the Pinot Noir you bring to every party! A delightful touch of cinnamon stick with a wisp of dusty earth and roasted marshmallows that enliven your taste buds. There's grip here with a silky, long finish. Will age well through 2022-2024. Would pair nicely with a broccoli quiche, creamy cheeses, roast turkey sandwiches, or a dish that has fresh cinnamon or cloves.
