From the far reaches of Mendocino County, this wine is prototypical Anderson Valley Pinot Noir, a delicious combination of floral aromas, ripe fruit flavors, and savory elements. Brilliant ruby red in color, this Pinot Noir offers up a complex mélange of cherry cola, herbal tea, pennyroyal mint, rose petal, damp soil, and cinnamon spice. The luscious entry leads to mouthfilling, lightly crunchy cherry, berry patch, and plum flavors. The velvet-textured mid-palate is full of fruit, with medium acidity and chocolate notes evident on the saline and intriguingly savory finish.

Critical Acclaim

“This beautiful expression of Pinot Noir from Anderson Valley emits immediate aromas of bright red cherry, raspberry and red plum complemented by earthy tones of roses, violets, damp forest floor, fresh mountain air and river-rock minerality. This depth and complexity follows through onto the palate, where fine-grained tannins create a silky texture. Elevated acidity maintains a sense of freshness from start to lingering finish. Editors’ Choice.” Score: 93 Points
