Sonoma Coast Releases

Coastal Sonoma is rugged, even extreme. Vineyards here can often see the Ocean on a clear day, and the wonder is always, will the fruit really ripen? While fog fills the air, some of our favorite vineyard sit right at or above the fog line, allowing for an interesting dance that sambas right through the challenges to offer distinctive fruit like you’ll find in our Mardikian Estate Vineyard.

2013 Pratt Vineyard Pinot Noir Image

SKU: 13MPPTPN7A

Jim Pratt began developing this vineyard in the late 1990s, on a site south of Graton and West of Sebastopol on the far western portions of the Sonoma Coast in an area known as Laguna Hills and more recently, the Sebastopol Hills. Ridges are mostly northeast to southwest oriented, falling within the main watershed for Atascadero Creek, which flows north into Green Valley creek and on into the Russian River. The slightly sloping hillside receives the classic morning fog and warm afternoons common to the coastal region, producing fruit with great acidity.

SKU: 14MPVBCH7A

I set the target high for this one, setting out to emulate a white Burgundy like expression of Chardonnay, drawing on four favorite handselected barrels from two memorable vineyards. Give the man a cigar, they said, and I took them up on the idea, using larger cigar shaped barrels from Ermitage to achieve a lighter oak influence with a kiss of acidity. This Petaluma Gap/Russian River mashup hits the mark, with a decided old world outlook balanced with a little new world sass.

You might call it a Sonoma Coast survey, or a Tour de Sonoma (we do love our GranFondo here). With each vintage we select lots from eight or so vineyards to create a master cuvée featuring layers of flavors driven by 11 varied clones planted in our vineyards.

2014 Mardikian Estate Pinot Noir Image

SKU: 14MPMKPN7A

In its sixth year (and third vintage) we find the vineyard offering fruit from all eight blocks planted, with a resulting step up stylistically, offering a richer, more complex wine worthy of contemplation. The character of Mardikian is still being revealed as the insights we gain from spending more time farming this treasured vineyard leads to all that Jim Pratt, Sander Scheer and I hoped when we first dusted our boots with these soils.

2014 Wildcat Vineyard Pinot Noir Image

$49.00
 
SKU: 14MPWCPN7A

This aptly named wine hails from a hilltop vineyard where grapes probably should never have been planted. But like a wild child with a mind of its own, praise the Pinot that grower Steve MacRostie soldiered on.

SKU: 13MPMKPN1

In its fifth year (and second vintage) we find the vineyard offering fruit from two additional blocks (of eight planted), increasing the number of clonal selections in this vintage to six, with a resulting step up stylistically, offering a richer, more complex wine worthy of considered contemplation. The character of Mardikian is still being revealed as the insights we gain from spending more time farming this treasured vineyard leads to all that Jim Pratt, Sander Scheer and I hoped when we first dusted our boots with these soils.
