Our Bodega Vineyard is our coolest and most exotic terroir. Steep, raw and powerful, Bodega sits just east of Bodega Bay between the villages of Freestone and Occidental. This westerly planting is one of the oldest meter-by-meter plantings of Pinot Noir on the Sonoma Coast.
Integral to this wine each vintage, there are prevalent notes of rose petals and black tea. The wine is richly textural with wild strawberry, burnt orange pith, exotic spice box, and tastes-of-the-forest on the initial palate, becoming a rich, dark berry on the mid-palate. Bodega has a wonderfully long and persistent finish.
