This is old school Anderson Valley all the way – pure and elegant dark cherry fruit with just a touch of rusticity. This high-elevation Pinot Noir made entirely from Pommard clone displays the quintessential dusty, spicy aromas of this classic clone. Pale garnet in the glass, the wine is certainly not shy with its intense aromas of cherry, black tea, clove, and cedar. The mouth filling palate shows bright acidity, balanced chalky tannins and a persistent finish with both fruit and spice lingering.
This fruit was de-stemmed and allowed to ferment naturally, it was aged for 17 months in French oak barrels, 25% new. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered, which means vegan. 98 cases produced.
