2015 Sadie's Vineyard Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley
Sadie’s Vineyard is named for the family’s first German Shepherd, who lived her life blissfully on this 5 acre parcel in beautiful Sebastopol Hills along the chilly Bodega Highway corridor. Shepherd #2, Kodiak, is now in charge of gopher monitoring. As a sweet reward, he gently snags a single ripe grape with his teeth every now and then. The site is planted to some of our favorite clones; Pommard and Dijon 115, and is composed of classic Goldridge soils, renowned for producing spectacular Pinot noir grapes.
A beautiful, vibrant garnet hue and an alluring bouquet of cranberry, nectarine and candied apple lure you into this fascinating Pinot Noir. On the palate you’ll find herbal, earthy and leathery notes with flavors of pink peppercorn, sweet blueberry, mineral and fresh tobacco. This wine is both edgy and hefty with lively tannins, and a smooth, supple, mouthwatering finish. An adventure in a glass!
