In 1999, Roger Scommegna planted a 16-acre vineyard on top of Cold Spring Mountain off Signal Ridge Road, 9 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. Overlooking the picturesque Anderson Valley at an elevation of 2,642 feet, the Signal Ridge Vineyard is the highest altitude grape-growing site in all of Mendocino, Sonoma, and Napa Counties. This unique place with challenging terroir produces some of the most high end singular fruit in the region.
In the glass, Signal Ridge 2012 Brut has a bright color like shiny white gold and a nose that unfurls notes of citrus and apricot wrapped into a fondant confection. Breezy crisp minerality on the entry leads to flavors of kumquat marmalade and peach preserves. Bright, refreshing, and finishes dry.
