Shibumi KnollSonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2019
2019 marks the third vintage coming from winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown’s own vineyard in Sonoma Coast. Riddle Vineyard is located on a ridge in Green Valley near the town of Occidental in the West Sonoma Coast. At 750 feet above sea level, its gentle, north facing slopes overlook many of the iconic Pinot Noir vineyards of the region. Foggy mornings burn off early, and the vines are drenched in warm sun for most of the day. Planted in 2008 at a high density, the vine roots stretch deep into Goldridge soils, seeking out nutrients and water and developing complex flavors in grapes. In the glass, the 2019 offers a silky texture filled with deep notes of bramble berries with hints of fresh forest floor. 245 cases were produced.
