WILD RIDGE 2012 PINOT NOIR SONOMA COAST 750mL

The 2011 was a staff favorite and quickly became a customer favorite, too! Now that the 2012 is here, a far superior vintage, we had high expectations, and while the wine is initially a bit more tight, it opens up to be just as good as the 2011! Winemaker Craig McAllister graduated with a Bachelor of Science in viticulture and enology from Lincoln University in New Zealand. He worked multiple harvests in New Zealand, Australia and Chile before coming to the U.S. and working at La Crema as Enologist, then Wild Ridge as winemaker. This Pinot is grown on vineyards located on the far western edge of California’s Sonoma Coast. The 900’ elevation site is a stone’s throw from the hamlet of Annapolis, an extreme setting blessed with a steady supply of cool marine air, Goldridge soils and dense forest surrounding the perimeter. This wildness comes through as clear as a bell as the wine balances the bright acidity and spicy notes considered classic in coastal Sonoma Pinots with rich texture and smooth tannins. Aromas of fresh blackberry, red plum and cedar are complemented by pomegranate, red plum, spice, orange zest and dark chocolate on the palate.
