Tasting Notes

93 points in the Pinot Report: "Medium-deep ruby color; deep, concentrated, berry aromas; deep, ripe berry and red cherry flavors with earthy, mineral notes and sweet oak; good structure and balance; long finish. Deep and concentrated Pinot that makes a good statement for this new vineyard in the Petaluma Gap region." (01/10) 90 points Robert Parker: "Sweet black cherry, licorice, forest floor, and floral notes are found in the attractive, dark plum-hued 2008 Pinot Noir Rodgers Creek Vineyard. The wine possesses velvety tannins, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and more complexity than the generic or Windsor Oaks offerings. It should drink nicely for 5-7 years." (02/10)

    It seems that each year Erich and Craig add a new Pinot fruit source. The 2008 Rodgers Creek is the first vintage they have produced of this wine, and it is a welcome addition. Rodgers Creek is located on a ridge in the Petaluma Gap, which is one of the coolest growing regions in Sonoma, and is ideally suited for producing classic Pinot Noir. The vines are grown in light chalky soils on steep inclines, causing natural vine stress and resulting in high levels of concentration. Even though this is a cool climate site, the wine has wonderful depth and expression. There is rich red fruit, a touch of minerality, a hint of toast and a wonderful silky feel.
