We love the earthiness and intensity of the Spring Hill Pinot Noir, which is very much a product of the Spring Hill Vineyard, situated in the Petaluma Gap which is known to produce small berries with thick skin, steering the wine away from the fruit dominance common among California Pinots.”
– Scott MacFiggen, Winemaker
Spring Hill is our old world, restrained, earth-driven wine. Spring Hill is all about finesse. And finesse is all about delivery. Finesse is when the wine does all the work, as it effortlessly delivers everything it has to offer, in just the right order, with just the right amplitude.
We sometimes call it our Steak Pinot although our favorite pairing for this wine is duck. We like to add Gordon Ramsey’s recipe of sauteed asparagus topped with asparagus puree. A perfect match.
ABOUT SOSIE WINES
France has always shaped our appreciation of wine. Its influence lives in the way our vineyards are farmed and in the way we treat the fruit in the cellar. We proclaim this affinity with our label and our name, sosie, which is french for “twin” or “spitting image.”
To make Sosie wines we source fruit from several different sites across Sonoma and Napa. We chose these vineyards because each is meticulously farmed to yield ripe, balanced fruit that requires few if any additions in the cellar. Some are at high elevations, some at low, but all share pronounced cooling influences that lend freshness to our wines.
