2009 Pinot Noir La Pommeraie Russian River Valley 750ml
 
About This Wine:
Our 2009 La Pommeraie Pinot Noir is handcrafted with fruit sourced from a Martinelli Family vineyard in the Russian River Valley which at one time was a spectacular apple orchard along the Laguna Ridge. Aptly christened "La Pommeraie" (French for apple orchard), our newest Pinot Noir pays homage to the Martinelli's site and its rich history. The vines are meticulously farmed and planted to Dijon Pinot Noir clones 777 & 828. This extraordinary single-vineyard Pinot Noir gives an immediate impression of depth and concentration in the glass, with remarkably explosive aromas of 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 six to eight years from vintage date.

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

Vineyard Notes:
The Russian River Valley experienced its third successive drought in the winter of 2008 and spring of 2009. The colder than average temperatures in spring pushed the season back by almost three weeks at flowering and fruit set. The summer was cool and dry with low mildew and rot pressure. Temperatures warmed in July and August, helping to create a very even verasion and setting the stage for a great vintage. Yields were below average and the stressed vines produced grapes with exceptional color, vibrant acidity, and balance. We are very excited about the 2009 vintage—it may be our best yet!

Winemaker Notes:
This spectacular Martinelli vineyard sits along Laguna Ridge at the edge of the Green Valley AVA. Meticulously farmed and planted at a very high density of 2,420 vines per acre, the vineyard is planted to Dijon Pinot Noir clones 777 and 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.
