Winemaker Notes

The 2017 vintage endured tragic wildfires that were driven by 80 mph winds on October 8-9. The fires devastated Napa and Sonoma counties, destroyed more than 8,000 structures, took 44 lives and disrupted winery operations for several days. Fortunately, all of our Pinot noir grapes were picked prior to the fires and there was no impact to our 2017 Pinot noir wines. Balanced vines and temperature fluctuations resulted in layers of flavors and complexity in the wines. The overall high quality of the vintage is a blessing after such challenging events. In 2017, the vines matured at a slow pace, allowing for long hang time and complex flavor development. We whole-cluster fermented 20% of the Rodgers Creek Pommard clone, adding aromatic complexity and verve. We emphasized the use of new oak barrels made from the Bertranges forest near Nevers, France, which ofers earthy umami characteristics that enhance the natural earth and mushroom notes of the Pommard clone in this wine.

James Suckling
I love this wine’s fragrant sour-cherry and black-raspberry nose that also has delicate, toasty and spicy notes. Ripe and rather concentrated with fine tannins that support beautifully the long, dry yet silky finish. Drink or hold.

Wine Spectator
Voluptuous, with plenty of rich, toasty notes to the red fruit and spice flavors, featuring accents of cola nut and sandalwood. Hints of chocolate show on the creamy finish. Drink now through 2023.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Pinot Noir Rodgers Creek Vineyard was made with 20% whole cluster and aged in 50% new French oak. Pale ruby, the nose reluctantly opens to crunchy cranberries, sour cherries, woodsmoke, earth and dried leaves aromas with touches of baking spice. The palate is light to medium-bodied and earthy with restrained fruit, a grainy frame and good freshness on the finish. 800 cases produced.

Mostly destemmed (20% whole clusters) and brought up in 50% new oak, the 2017 Pinot Noir Rogers Creek Vineyard offers a medium ruby/translucent hue as well as a great Pinot Noir nose of spiced mulberries and raspberries intermixed with plenty of dried flowers and forest floor notes. It’s clean, medium-bodied, incredibly pretty, and elegant. It’s slightly fleeting on the fin

Sonoma Coast Wine

Sonoma County, California

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.”
