(From 2009 Vintage) Our 2009 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir has a bright ruby-red color and a complex, evolving nose of wild strawberries, black plums, fresh rose petals and wild mushrooms with hints of cinnamon and spearmint. On the palate, the wine begins with a fruit-sweet attack quickly followed by notes of baking spices, blood orange and berries and finishes with notes of bittersweet chocolate and black cherry framed by fine-grained tannins. This wine has perfect acid balance and the notions of forest fruit linger for minutes on the palate.
(From 2013 Vintage) Our 2013 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir is a full-bodied wine in which the ripe berry character of the Ferrington Vineyard is beautifully complemented by the purity of fruit from our estate owned Monument Tree Vineyard. This wine has a red-rose color and a nose of black cherry, potpourri and brown sugar. It has a fruit-sweet attack, excellent acid balance and flavors of strawberries, brown sugar and laurel on the palate. The wine finishes with a hint of tannin and a lingering taste of licorice.
