2016 Pinot Noir, Peters Vineyard, Magnum

Winemaker's Reserve, Peters Vineyard, Sonoma Coast 



Located in west Sonoma County, 15 miles from the coast as the crow flies, this is the perfect location for Pinot Noir. This vineyard’s soil composition is a rich Goldridge Sandy Loam.  With consistent foggy conditions which extend hang time, the fruit is fully developed and loaded with complexity. This former Gravenstein apple orchard was replanted in the early 1980’s by Randy Peters, who paired the right clone with the right vineyard site.  The Pinot Noir from our block is the Pommard Clone, which is grown on 5-C and 101-14 rootstocks. 

Tasting Notes

The 2015 Winemaker’s Reserve is a blend of three different clones. It showcases the beautiful vintage and growing region to perfection. This Pinot is loaded with black cherry, plum and tea flavors that are intense and concentrated with a pretty floral scent. The polished texture of this wine and the lingering flavors are persistent through the finish.
