Our Bodega vineyard is our coolest, most exotic site, situated directly behind Bodega Bay between the villages of Freestone and Occidental and within miles of the Pacific Ocean. Lower in elevation, Bodega is engulfed in refreshing, morning fog and constant coastal breezes. This 1.8 acre site is the oldest meter-by-meter planting of pinot noir on the Sonoma Coast. Due to its high density and steepness, this site is farmed 100% by hand.
Rose petals, wild strawberries, wild black plum, and crushed boysenberry fill the bowl. Chanterelles, thyme, and wild black berry aromas persist. On the palate a black fruit core is woven together with exotic spice, orange pith and notes of the surrounding forest in which the vines grew. Flavors of dark berries, forest floor and crushed gravel give way to a beautiful, long finish.
