2021 Blue Farm "King Ridge" Pinot Noir, Fort Ross-Seaview, Sonoma, California (750ml)
About the Icons
Anne Moller-Racke has many years of experience crafting fine Pinot Noir, and all of her Blue Farm wines are top notch. This is perhaps the most compelling and nuanced of the three we recently tasted, however. The King Ridge vineyard is planted to Calera & Bacigalupi clones. Spicy, layered and complex Pinot Noir that merits a spot in your cellar or on your table sooner.
Producer notes - "King Ridge vineyard is tucked away on the northwestern reach of the Sonoma Coast. The AVA is Fort Ross-Seaview. At 1100 ft elevation and 5 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, King Ridge Vineyard is worth a journey. We are excited to be working with 2 acres of this spectacular vineyard. Tightly spaced vines on Goldridge soils, superbly farmed, create wines that have tension and richness; balance and edginess. 250 cases made"
