Sonoma enjoyed idyllic grape growing conditions in 2012. A perfect spring bud break, followed by steady flowering, an even fruit set, and just the right amount warm sunny days and cool foggy nights, ensured that grapes enjoyed the extended hang time needed to fully develop. This was welcome news to local winemakers after having weathered the excessively wet and cool conditions of the previous two vintages. The 2012 harvest in Sonoma produced exceptional grapes showing great structure and finesse, with well-developed fruit flavors and balanced acidity. While quality was high across the board, our Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir from the Petaluma Gap was a true standout displaying elegant structure, beautiful color and wonderfully perfumed aromas.
