2015 Pinot Noir Petaluma Gap
Experience the blend of art and science that makes our single vineyard wines outstanding in our appellation series, where we play with quality grapes and consciously craft the wine to highlight the natural attributes of the grape as expressed in a particular geography. Terragena provides the opportunity to explore a season in a glass and to enjoy connecting with others over a meal in a range of accessible price points while also aiming to inspire others to continue building a better world with the coolest wine.
The namesake opening in the coastal ridge 25 miles north of San Francisco makes up the 'wind to wine' conditions of Petaluma Gap. For Pinot Noir, the heavy morning fog and afternoon wind delay ripening to create a velvety texture similar to Burgundy.
This wine features aromas and flavors of cola, nutmeg, vanilla, and dark cherry. The extended barrel time allows the delicate Pinot Noir tannins to meld with the traditional tannic structure of the French cooperage, creating a delicious and complex wine.
