Embodying the rural soul of the Sonoma Coast, Thorn Ridge’s hillsides are a magnet for cold sea air and fog, yielding a sophisticated wine with exceptional structure and aging potential. The vineyard was planted in 1995 and has been a key contributor within our family of wines for years.
Nestled in the hills of southwest Sebastopol, this site is dry farmed on Goldridge soils where low vigor silt adds depth and concentration to the resulting wine. Notes of blackberry and sassafras blend in harmony with a wild, rustic edge of earth and minerality.
Nose: Alluring notes of wild blackberry and sassafras.
Mouth: Hints of red and dark fruit with a rustic edge of earthy minerality and black tea.
