About This Wine:
This spectacular vineyard sits along Laguna Ridge at the edge of the Green Valley AVA. Meticulously farmed and planted at a very high density of 2420 vines per acre, the vineyard is planted to Dijon Pinot Noir clones 777 & 828. Once a spectacular apple orchard, we pay homage to the Martinelli Family and the history of the site by naming the wine ‘La Pommeraie’ – French for apple orchard.

Tasting Notes:
This extraordinary single vineyard Pinot Noir gives an immediate impression of depth and concentration in the glass, with remarkably explosive aromas of anise, boysenberry and black cherry. The palate is viscous and rich, yet light on its feet, with fine-polished tannins and an exceptionally balanced acidity. Although delicious upon release, we expect this wine to improve with cellaring for 6-8 years from vintage date.

Vineyard Notes:
To describe the 2010 growing I season I like to use the analogy of riding a roller coaster. Abundant rains in the winter 2009 and spring 2010 broke a three year drought and replenished groundwater for the season. Spring and summer along the Sonoma Coast was persistently foggy and cold, resulting in only a handful of days over 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The cold growing season pushed harvest back nearly one month and produced miniscule yields. The small, but exceptional, crop we harvested produced grapes with crisp acidity, and intense flavors.
