The Sangiacomo Vineyard along Roberts Road produced exceptional fruit again in 2010. The
cool Spring season delayed bud break, and the ocean breezes and Petaluma Gap fog moderated
temperatures throughout the growing season, allowing for long hang times, slow ripening, and loads
of natural acidity and freshness. In 2009 we added Swan and Pommard clones to our traditional blend
of clones 115 and 777, and we loved the resulting complexity and earthiness. We maintained this four
clone recipe for the 2010 vintage, adding a bit more 777 from a new block to the blend.
The 2010 Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot noir seduces your nose with aromas of strawberry and orange
peel overlaying a core of dark cherry and earthy forest floor. Textures are creamy and silky with slightly
more structure than previous vintages. The finish is long, with lingering hints of cherry and spice. This
perennial favorite wine is sure to be a quick sell-out once again.
