Flowers Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2000
Located just 2 miles from the Pacific Ocean, the ranch consists of 321 acres with 21 acres planted to Chardonnay and only 8 acres of Pinot Noir. Elevations range from 1,150 to 1,375 feet positioning the vineyard above the coastal fog layer thus allowing generous amounts of sunshine during the growing season. This unique combination of abundant sunshine and cooling fog rolling in and out of the vineyard creates an ideal growing environment for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Soils in the vineyard are diverse with at least six marine and volcanic soil types present. The topsoil is shallow only 6” to 18” deep over metamorphic rock that allows for exceptional drainage. Years of study went into selecting proper root stocks and clonal selections for the initial planting and we continue to experiment and fine-tune today. The vines of Camp Meeting Ridge struggle for water and nutrients which limits vine vigor, reduces yield, and produces small berries with great concentration of flavors and aromas.
