Winemaker Erich Bradley Notes
The Rodgers Creek vines are grown in light, chalky volcanic ash soils on steep inclines, causing natural vine stress and resulting in high levels of concentration. Two blocks of Pommard Pinot noir clone form the foundation of this wine, with clone 777 adding bright fruit and silky textures.

It is a showy wine - very expressive and forward, with smooth textures and a lingering finish. Familiar aromas of mushroom and soy overlay layers of red fruit flavors, earth and hints of rosemary. 94 points – Pinot Report 91 points – California Grapevine ...more...
