*Kokomo Gopher Hill Pinot Noir
Kokomo Pinot Noir Gopher Hill, Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, USA
This block of Peters Vineyard gets its name from the varmints that try to make it their home. Dense and opulent, showing the more masculine side of the varietal, this pinot displays earth and plum notes aromatically. On the palate robust bright cherry and floral flavors are followed by a faint white pepper finish. The acidity makes it a perfect food wine.

Located in West County, 10 miles from the coast as the crow flies, this is the perfect location for Pinot Noir. This vineyard's soil composition is a rich Goldridge Sandy Loam. With consistent fog and extended hang time, this fruit is fully developed and loaded with complexity. This former Gravenstein Apple orchard was replanted in the early 80's by Randy Peters, who only had access to two clones at that time, Pommard and Waldenswil (2A).
