Farmstead Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
The 2015 Farmstead Pinot Noir is sourced from 2 small growers in the Anderson Valley, located just a stone's throw from our estate vineyard. The small crop in 2015, coupled with early ripening Dijon clones, produced richly flavored fruit that displays the fruit intensity and perfume of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir. The wine is pale ruby and garnet in appearance and has aromas of fresh red and black cherry, earthy strawberry, subtle cardamom, clove and cedar box. The palate has zippy red berry fruit in the entry, and a supple, perfumed and velvety mid palate with nuances of baking spices. The acid structure of the wine gives it life, length and versatility in food pairing - from grilled fish to roast duck.
