Our Bodega Vineyard is our coolest and most exotic terroir. Steep, raw, and powerful, Bodega sits just east of Bodega Bay between the villages of Freestone and Occidental. This westerly planting is one of the oldest meter-by-meter plantings of pinot noir on the Sonoma Coast and this vine density shows in the wine. Black cherry, wild strawberry, coastal forest floor, rose petals, black tea, wet rock, and exotic spice box fill the bowl. On the palate, the wine is held together with bright acidity backed by youthful fine-grained tannins. Flavors of wild red and dark berries and crushed gravel give way to a beautiful long finish.
