Rich spices and dark cherry flavors. This vintage has a pure fruit profile, while still showing nuances of mushroom, earth, and Asian spice that dominated the previous vintage.
Medium-deep ruby color; bright, deep dark cherry aromas with earthy, mushroomy notes; deep, bright cherry fruit flavors with mushroom and earthy notes and sweet oak; good structure and balance; long finish. Earthy, complex Pinot that needs a good hour in the glass—dreamy with some mushroom pasta.
The seventh Pinot Noir, the 2009 Pinot Noir Rodgers Creek (which sits on a high ridge of the Petaluma Windgap) is made from Dijon clone 777. Attractive underbrush and forest/moss notes intermingle with cherry and spice box. The complex aromatics of this dark plum/ruby wine are very Burgundian. The sweetness of fruit, an inner core of depth and richness, as well as the vibrancy and medium to full-bodied mouthfeel result in a complex, intense wine to drink over the next 7-10 years.
An enticing floral mix of herb, spice, black cherry and wilted rose, this builds intensity and depth, with detailed blackberry, mineral and cedar notes that firm up on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 575 cases made.
