Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot NoirStructure, Depth, and Concentration

Located at the foot of Sonoma Mountain in the Petaluma Gap, the grapes grow on flat to gently sloping land of gravelly clay loam. The climate is cool, and yields are small. From a total of 40 acres of Pinot Noir planted in 2000, only the Dijon 115 and Pommard clones are selected. Owner Michael Sangiacomo, a third generation grape farmer, says that “The 115 clone gives the wine structure, depth and concentration while the Pommard is visceral with fruit forward character.”

Tasting Notes

We’ve always been inspired by the Sangiacomo family, and the multiple generations that represent one of Sonoma’s most beloved farming families. Their history and appreciation for the land translates to the glass, where Pinot Noir from this Petaluma Gap vineyard formed from ancient river bottom, cobbled with stones, and recognizable for an earthy, savory signature is sometimes called sexy and full-throttle. Silky and smooth right now, bright red fruits led by raspberry and maraschino cherry layer next to darker red expressions of red plum accented with cocoa, pepper and cedar. Full-bodied and sturdy, yet capable of showing some Sunday go to Church restraint, it’s once again destined to be one of our most talked about and well appreciated wines of the vintage.
