Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Fogdog Pinot Noir has a very pronounced perfume of sour cherry compote with layers of cinnamon, spice, black tea and wet earth. The 2007 vintage was fantastic for the production of concentrated Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. The warm weather in early September followed by a 12-day cooling spell allowed for longer than expected hang time. These conditions yielded small berries, hardened stems and loads of concentration. Slow fermentation with approximately 20% whole clusters on average produced a wine with concentration, balance and tremendous aromas that excite the nose before the first sip is taken.

Blend: 100% Pinot Noir
