Winemaker's Notes:

Wild Ridge has a multilayered nose. Red berry and stone fruit (cranberry, plum and cherry) are complemented by hints of orange zest, anise, cedar and green tea. Cranberry, pomegranate and blue- and blackberry dominate the entry. Anise, cardamom, a slight earthiness and integrated tannins add weight and structure. Bright acidity contributes lift to a lingering finish.
My Notes:

About Wild Ridge:

Wild Ridge Pinot Noir is grown in our vineyard located on the far western edge of California’s Sonoma Coast. The 900 foot elevation site is a stone’s throw from the hamlet of Annapolis, an extreme setting blessed with a steady supply of cool marine air, goldridge soils and dense forest surrounding the perimeter. This wildness comes through as clear as a bell: vibrant blue fruit, spice and savory elements flow through a texture that’s both mouth-filling and stony­ – the mirror expression of our Wild Ridge Terroir.
