2018 Sangiacomo Roberts Road Vineyard
The Sangiacomo family works closely with us to farm Block 20 to our exact specifications. Roberts Road vineyard, at the eastern foothills base of the Sonoma Coast AVA adjacent to the Gaps Crown, typically yields a lighter than average crop. The Pacific Ocean breeze
moderates the suns impact allowing the fruit to fully mature while retaining gorgeous softness in this delicate varietal.
Petaluma Gap characteristics of red and blue fruit overflow in this Pinot Noir in the bouquet and taste. Swirling accents of blueberry pie, violets, cedar, cigar box, Santa Rosa plum, and cherry make this medium-bodied wine a delight for your senses. Silky finish that benefited from French oak barrel aging. Enjoy it tonight or cellar properly for a few years (2023-2025). Would be tasty with plank-roasted salmon, lamb tikki masala, or a vegetable frittata (we like to use Maitake mushrooms).
