2015 Pinot Noir Anderson Valley

Pinot Noir
Anderson Valley

The grapes for this wine originate from three very different vineyards bringing a cornucopia of fruit flavors. Following two years of successive drought, the 2015 vintage was another very early vintage here in Anderson Valley. We were concerned that sugars would rise before full fruit maturation. Luckily, with little water available, the vines responded with extremely concentrated fruit flavors. Still young and somewhat shy when first opened, given a little aeration this wine shows aromas of berry patch mingled with creaminess and toasty spice notes. Helluva Vineyard provides the candied red cherry and cinnamon Red Hot flavors. Our deep end winery estate vineyard contributes raspberry and boysenberry flavors and bright acidity. And our hilltop RSM vineyard adds blueberry, redwood forest notes, and root beer. This elegant and polished wine is full on the palate with smooth milk chocolate tannins and hints of cedar with fresh acidity focusing the fruit and encouraging another sip. Serve with game hens and mushroom gravy or veal saltimbocca.
