Bob’s Ranch Estate Vineyard
Characterized by its proximity to the Pacific Ocean.
Sonoma Coast Appellation
Heavy fog and strong winds tempered by bright afternoon sunshine.
Sandy, Well-draining Soils
Stresses vines into producing grapes of full varietal intensity.
Our first vintage release of the Bob's Ranch Pinot Noir is steeped in old world aromas of earth, truffle, and forest floor. The palate has bright acidity up front followed by bold, ripe and concentrated red fruit. It's a perfect blend of modern and traditional, a precise and elegant wine that will age very well.
In 2014, an exceptionally dry winter and warm spring led to an early bud break. The growing season ran ahead of schedule all year. The lower yields produced concentrated, complex, and age-worthy wines.
