2013 Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot Noir

Sonoma Coast

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, James selects the Dijon 115 and Pommard clones. Owner Michael Sangiacomo, a third generation grape farmer, says that “James picks from good blocks of grapes. The 115 clone gives the wine structure, depth and concentration while the Pommard is visceral with fruit forward character."

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.

Wine Profile
Awards
~ 90 Points "Outstanding" / “Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Pleasant aromas of black raspberry, black cherry and ripe strawberry lead to a full-bodied charge of black cherry and black raspberry fruits that are graced by complimentary tannins. Enviable fruit expression and admirable balance, with some finishing length.” Rusty Gaffney, PinotFile
