2017 Pratt Vineyard Pinot Noir

Red plum, just-ripe cherry, boysenberry, and a hint of fresh herbs stand out on the nose. Rhubarb and red cherry with spice shine on the palate. Young, but still ready to drink. With proper storage could age for ten years.

In the mid-90s, Jim Pratt, a vineyard manager to some of the most respected wineries in the Sonoma Coast and Russian River, went looking for a property to call his own. Jim explored Sebastopol, where apple farms were being converted to vineyard.  Here, he found an ideal site south of Graton and west of Sebastopol: a 10 acre hillside location sitting on Goldridge soils with the perfect mix of cool weather —fog and wind — and early afternoon sunshine to produce vibrant high acid fruit. In 2000, Jim acquired the neighboring propriety and planted an additional 7 acres.

Appellation: Sonoma Coast

Clones: 39% Pommard, 39% Dijon 828, 22% Clone 23

Terroir:  Goldridge soil series, which is well-drained and highly erodible, with poor nutrients forcing vines to struggle thus delivering dense fruit clusters.  Overall climate is cool, foggy and sometimes windy; however, with enough sunshine to produce fruit with intense color and flavors.
