Bright and refreshing, the 2015 FEL Anderson Valley Pinot Noir, has loads of fresh raspberry and pie cherry aromatics up front. With time in the glass, more nuanced aromas of mint, black tea, and dried sage add depth and complexity. Flavors of alpine strawberry, pomegranate, and kirsch provide an enticing entry to the palate. The wine’s generous acidity and silky tannins provide a lengthy finish that leaves the taster reaching for another sip. This elegant wine will easily age for at least a decade.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
This wine is 100% Pinot Noir, made of a blend of select clones including Pommard, Mt. Eden, Martini, and Dijon from vineyards including the vaunted Ferrington and Donnelly Creek vineyards, both located just outside the town of Boonville, and our estate Savoy Vineyard, long recognized as a benchmark vineyard in Anderson Valley.
Production Notes
The fruit was harvested August 18 through September 22 at an average of 24.4° Brix. It then went through a five to seven-day cold soak at 55°F, a nine-day primary fermentation peaking at 88-92°F, and a three-day extended maceration. The wine was aged sixteen months in 60 gallon French oak barrels, 34% of which were new. Coopers include Cadus, Rousseau, Quintessence, François Frères, and Sirugue.
