Bodega Thieriot (estate)

Vintage Notes

Max and Lexi Thieriot searched all across Sonoma County for their ideal “forever property”. Fate would bring them back to west county and only minutes from where Max grew up, when this ranch came on the market. Purchasing the property in 2013, from a family who had owned it for over 100 years, they had found their perfect home. The ranch features ninety acres of rolling hills, ocean views, oaks and redwoods, and an ideal coastal vineyard site sharing a fence line with Steve Kistler’s Occidental Winery. In 2016, Max and Lexi, with winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown began planting their home ranch and the second generation of Thieriot Vineyards was officially born: Bodega Thieriot.

Winemaker Notes

“Pouring a nearly opaque purple/ruby, the 2021 Pinot Noir Bodega Thieriot takes on more depth and warming spices, with aromas of crushed pine needles, brambly blackberry, and lavender oil. Beautifully balanced and harmonious, this full-bodied red is weightless in feel and texture, with ripe tannins and seamless acidity throughout. Long on the palate, with notes of black raspberry, turned soil, and smoked tea leaf, it has a generous and open nature now but will certainly improve with a couple more years in bottle. Drink 2025-2040.” – 98pts, Jeb Dunnuck
