Berridge Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2009

A dark and earthy Pinot, it is immediately expressive out of the glass with notes of fresh berries, cherry, plum, and toasted almonds. The palate is silky smooth and delivers wave upon wave of plum, cranberry, and blood orange Showing its maturity beautifully.

Nurturing such a fickle grape in such extreme locations makes for amazing Pinot Noirs. From the cliffs of New Zealand to the mountain tops and coastal regions of Northern California, they bring to you, Berridge Wine Company. Richard Berridge believes great wine begins from within the soils of our earth. Next is the location of those soils, how the vines are planted, and finally how they are nurtured.
