Flavor profile: red and black plums, a hint of orange zest


The key to producing top flight Pinot Noir is the site. The Ritchie Vineyard that was the source for this wine is most famous for Chardonnay, but also has the right climate and soils to produce great Pinot Noir.

Tasting Notes
The 2018 Flanagan Pinot Noir Ritchie Vineyard offers a refined nose of rose petals and jasmine. On the palate the wine has very pretty red and black plums and a hint of orange zest. The key to producing top flight Pinot Noir is the site. The Ritchie Vineyard that was the source for this wine is most famous for Chardonnay, but also has the right climate and soils to produce great Pinot Noir. The winemaking is focused on balance and allowing the site and the vintage to express itself.
Vineyard Notes
The 2018 vintage was a typical Sonoma County growing season. . .except for the unusually large crop. The Pinot Noir crop was about 30% larger than 2017. The Ritchie Vineyard also had a large crop in 2018 with Pinot Noir yields well above average. Ritchie generally crops moderately so even in a year with more fruit than average it was still quite manageable. A warm fall season, with no rain late in the year, allowed us to ripen the larger than normal crop.
