Exposed to the rigors of the foggy Sonoma coastline, this sixth-generation family-owned ranch resides on a bluff above Bodega, a few miles from the Pacific Ocean. This marginal site on the edge of the Sonoma Coast, Demeter certified Biodynamicģ and farmed by the Benzigers, is characterized by consistently low yields and extended hang times. Miniscule yields in 2011 seemed abundant compared to the challenges faced in 2010. The confluence of natural elements reflected in this wine yield a personality unique and true to its Sonoma Coast roots.
A light carmine core that is flushed with hues of rust and crimson. This true coastal expression of Pinot Noir offers intriguing aromas of bergamot, dried black tea leaf and vibrant red fruit. The first sip curiously shows a differing yet totally complementary experience to the aromas. The smooth entry quickly leads to complex layers of Asian spices, dark cherries and crushed cranberry. The soft mouthfeel is enhanced with silky tannin and a pleasant tartness that ties this fascinating wine together.
