Vineyard Notes
Our Bodega Ridge Block is sourced from two distinctive vineyards; Petersen Vineyard and Bella Sonoma Vineyards. The blocks selected from each vineyard are at higher elevations where the vines must soldier through the extreme conditions of the Sonoma Coast.

Vintage Notes
2015 was another year marked by drought in the Sonoma Coast appellation. An even growing season lead to an early harvest of lighter yields. Warmer temperatures in August helped accelerate sugar accumulation and encourage ripeness while the small berry size concentrated flavors, making this another exceptional vintage on the Sonoma Coast.

Winemaker Notes
The Bodega Ridge Block vineyard selections are planted with Dijon Clones 115, 667 and 777. The earlier ripening Clone 115 affords the wine savory notes; dusty aromas, hints of earth and dried fruit flavors. Clone 667 lends a boost of Bing cherry, tart raspberry, and refreshing acidity, while Clone 777 affords dark fruit and rich tannins to the blend. Each vineyard block is individually fermented and barrel aged, then blended to taste to create a wine greater than the sum of its parts and capturing the essence of the Sonoma Coast appellation.
