- AP Vin Pinot Noir Ridgetop Vyd Sonoma Coast 2010 Product #25588 (In Stock)
My personal favorite from Tuesday’s tasting with winemaker Andrew Vingiello, this screams “Sonoma Coast Pinot” to me. Andrew made 125 cases of this beauty in 2010 from fruit grown at 1,100 feet just a few miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. Andrew explained that this site gets plenty of cooling breezes from the ocean, but sits above the fog line on the eastern side of the mountains, allowing the vines to reach full ripeness even in a roller-coaster year like 2010.
The aromas and flavors show plenty of tangy Pinot Noir fruit with a lift of almost citrusy acidity and softly tannic finish. I liked the brightness and sweet/sour, ying/yang of this wine and the lengthy, soft, finish.
