There’s a beautiful knoll that faces the Petaluma River, right at the tip of San Pablo Bay. Welcome to La Cruz, the sustainably farmed Petaluma Gap vineyard that is the source of our new hero (and neighbor - he lives 8 blocks away!) Bret Hogan’s Côte West Pinot Noir. Pacific Ocean fog flows freely across the vines here; the cooler microclimate packs all the Pinot flavors in and preserves acidity. This is coastal Pinot at its prettiest: floral on the nose, earthy on the palate, with red fruit, black pepper, vanilla, and the barest hint of sassafrass. Won’t you be our neighbor?
