Winemaker Notes

An expressive bouquet of blueberry, cassis and brush. Hickory and earth are complemented by nuanced floral notes of violet and lilac. Velvet-textured entry leads to a palate drenched in raspberry with accents of sandalwood and black tea leaf. Sculpted by fresh, fruity acidity, the wine’s structure turns to slate minerality on the finish. A single vineyard Pinot Noir of aromatic complexity and an embodiment of terroir.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Pinot Noir Sangiacomo Vineyard Roberts Road is pale ruby-purple colored with a nose of ripe red cherries, fresh raspberries and wild strawberries with touches of baking spices and red roses. Medium-bodied, very finely crafted, refreshing and beautifully expressed, it features delicate red berries and a soft, silken texture, finishing long and perfumed. 264 cases produced.

Wine Enthusiast
Earthy notions of tree bark and forest floor mark this lovely wine, a light bright expression of the variety that's focused and tense in acidity. Baked orange and plum flavors add to the mix, contributing to the spicy, lengthy palate of flavor and understated intensity.

The 2016 Pinot Noir Sangiacomo Roberts Road is terrific and comes from a site on the Sonoma Coast and is a mix of 777 and Swan clones aged ten months in 40% new French oak. It has a perfumed, complex bouquet of cherries, white flowers, and pine forest. Medium-bodied, fresh, focused, and elegant on the palate, I like its tension and purity, and it’s an outstanding Pinot Noir to enjoy over the coming decade. Rating: 91+

Sonoma Coast Wine

Sonoma County, California

View all products

A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs all the way from the Mendocino County border, south to the San Pablo Bay. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the actual coastal vineyards, marked by marine soils, cool temperatures and saline ocean breezes—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, which are still heavily influenced by the Pacific but not quite with same intensity.

Contained within the appellation are the much smaller Fort Ross-Seaview and Petaluma Gap AVAs.

The Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah. The wines have high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and balanced ripeness.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
