From the winery: "2010 was our third vintage working with Rodgers Creek Vineyard, and the third time was definitely a charm. This Pinot noir shows the familiar earthy and mushroom elements that have been consistent through each vintage and seem to exude from the unique soils and dominant Pommard clone. The site is well-suited for Pinot Noir, sitting high on a ridge in the heart of the Petaluma Gap and taking the full brunt of wind and thick fog that define this cool climate zone. The vines are grown in light, chalky volcanic ash soils on steep inclines, causing natural vine stress and resulting in high levels of concentration. Elegant aromas of mushroom, earth, and Asian spice overlay a core of dark cherry and blackberry. This wine stands out in a crowd and shows the most Burgundian flavors in our 2010 line-up. The texture is very Californian, with great lushness, silky tannins, and lingering finish." This bottling scored 92 points from the Pinot Report, and the 2009 vintage scored 92 points from both Robert Parker's Wine Advocate and Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar.
