Appellation: Mendocino Ridge AVA

By: Poe Wines

In: Napa, CA

750mL / 13.0% ABV

Winestyr Review

The famed Manchester Ridge Vineyard lies "in the sky" of Mendocino Ridge AVA, a non-contiguous appellation celebrating high elevation plantings near the coast. Here, the coastal sun ripens these Pinot Noir vines slowly and fully while the ocean breezes keep the nights cool and allow for impeccably balanced finished wines. Poe is a notorious supporter of this site where they source Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

What We Love

  • Mendocino Ridge AVA
  • Cool climate Pinot Noir
  • Acclaimed winemaking

Drink this now or over the next 5-10 years, accompanied by seared duck breast and whipped potatoes in either case.

Experience

Samantha Sheehan founded POE in 2009 after being inspired by the wines she tasted in Burgundy and Champagne. The goal is not to replicate Burgundy, but rather create alluring, vineyard specific, age-worthy wines revealing the beautiful terroir of California. There is minimal intervention, judicious use of sulfur, and never any additives. POE produces traditional Champagne method sparkling wines, rosé, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and a nouveau from Pinot Noir. Each wine is made in very limited quantities, and sold directly from the winery and to high-end restaurants around the country.
