The seventh Pinot Noir, the 2009 Pinot Noir Rodgers Creek (which sits on a high ridge of the Petaluma Windgap) is made from Dijon clone 777. Attractive underbrush and forest/moss notes intermingle with cherry and spice box. The complex aromatics of this dark plum/ruby wine are very Burgundian. The sweetness of fruit, an inner core of depth and richness, as well as the vibrancy and medium to full-bodied mouthfeel result in a complex, intense wine to drink over the next 7-10 years. This Sonoma winery, owned by Craig Haserot, while the winemaker is Erich Bradley, has come a long way in a very short period of time. The current releases include some very appealing Pinot Noirs.

Bright ruby. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet evokes candied cherry and blackberry, with exotic potpourri and loamy earth qualities building with air. Shows impressive power but there's a lithe quality to this wine's potent bitter cherry and black raspberry flavors. Finishes sweet and very long, with resonating florality and vibrant mineral cut.
An enticing floral mix of herb, spice, black cherry and wilted rose, this builds intensity and depth, with detailed blackberry, mineral and cedar notes that firm up on the finish. (JL)
