The aromatics of our 2014 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir are bright with sweet notes of black cherry, pomegranate, boysenberry, and truffle. Hints of cinnamon, caraway, and toast are reflective of both Anderson Valley’s spice driven terroir, and the extended aging in French oak barrels. In the mouth, the wine is loaded with rich flavors of dark fruit, cocoa, and spice. The palate is refined with pleasant acidity and elegant tannins that continue to unfold after the last sip. This is a generous wine that will continue to evolve and drink well for at least half a decade.

The fruit was harvested September 2 through 17 at an average of 24.6° Brix. It then went through a five to seven day cold soak at 55°F, a nine day primary fermentation peaking at 88-94°F, and a three to seven day extended maceration. The wine was aged sixteen months in 60 gallon French oak barrels, 42% of which were new. Coopers include Cadus, Rousseau, Quintessence, François Frères, and Sirugue.
