Fogdog Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2011 Fogdog Pinot Noir is loaded with rich aromas of Black cherry, red raspberry, wild mushroom, tangerine peel and hints of earth and violets. Nicely balanced with bright acidity, this wine is filled with rich red fruit, white pepper and baking spices. During the Fogdog blending process, wines are chosen that boast lively fruit charac- teristics in addition to texture and acidity that are approachable upon release.

Vintage: 2008 11/03/2011

Firm, intense and vivid, with complex blueberry, wild berry, spice, fresh earth and spicy, cedary notes. Full-bodied, young and tight, this is slow to unfold, but does so gracefully.

When Napa Valley icon Joseph Phelps decided he wanted to produce Pinot Noir he searched for the best possible location. This led him the Sonoma Coast where he founded Freestone Vineyards. Three estate vineyards are planted; Pastorale, Quarter Moon and Ferguson, and all three are sourced for this supple, ripe Fogdog 2008. Aged 15 months in French oak barrels, the Wine Spectator described it as “Firm, intense and vivid, with complex blueberry, wild berry, spice, fresh earth and spicy, cedary notes. Full-bodied, young and tight, this is slow to unfold, but does so gracefully. Should get better. Drink now through 2018.” Grab it now while it’s ON SALE!!!
