Floodgate, now called Starscape, was our first Russian River vineyard and 2009 was our first year getting this fruit.

The 2009 Floodgate is the oldest wine still available in our library. Some Pinots add weight as they age, others can soften and become almost shy aromatically. The 2009 Floodgate definitely has added some depth and aromatic heft. This is an un-fined, un-filtered wine that shows some funk and an aromatic profile that shows stewed fruit, porcini mushroom, moist forest floor, and a note of fresh cut Douglas fir. On the palate there is more of that earthy profile. It is light and savory on the palate showing some mouth-watering umami as well. Drink now through 2020.
