Foggy Bottom Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2014

Details

While remaining dedicated to delivering Pinot Noir from the cool climate of California's Sonoma Coast (AKA North Coast), the Foggy Bottom 2014 blends fruit from the Petaluma Gap (home to its big brother, the Easkoot Marin) as well as exploring the Green Valley of the Russian River Valley AVA.
Here you can find the vineyards for such luminary wines as Dehlinger, Merry Edwards, Keefer and Paul Hobbs, to name just a few-- this is definitely not undiscovered territory.
We certainly liked what we saw and tasted and are proud to share it with you in this round of Foggy Bottom. Notes of dark skinned berries and forest floor show in restraint, with hints of fine spice and cranberry.
A blend of Marin County and the Russian River Valley.
Sourced from (not so) secret vineyards in the Russian River Valley area of the Sonoma Coast, including the Stori vineyard in the Green Valley, as well as the Chileno Valley in the Petaluma Gap.

Matt Duffy

A lifelong resident of Northern California, it was an uncle (Uncle Bob) who taught Matt the difference between wine being something to appreciate and not just something to drink. Matt stresses that this is an important distinction in the land of Gallo, where they serve Mad Dog 20/20 and Boones Farm with the school lunches and all children start drinking early.

By his 20’s he was working at Twisted Oak Winery, both in the tasting room and in the cellar during crush.

At Vinify, where Easkoot is lured from grape to barrel to bottle, Matt quickly worked his way up from cellar rat to cellar master, overseeing hundreds of wines and watching different approaches and ideas play out in good and not-so-good ways. It’s a crash course in winemaking, but one that has left him with a unique skill set. But more importantly, Matt shares the Easkoot vision for a style of wine that we feel has been lost in California over the last few decades.
