The earlier vintage and warmer weather around harvest intensified the fruit notes in this delicious 2017 Pinot Noir. The wine exhibits bright aromatics and flavors that are a hallmark of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir. In addition to the abundant cherry on the nose, pomegranate, Mission fig, and sandalwood are detectable. The mouth is loaded with bright red fruit and spice flavors, bringing to mind a raspberry coulis with hints of mint. Plenty of fresh acidity fleshes out the palate and brings verve to the finish.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The grapes were sourced from some of the premier vineyards in the Anderson Valley, including the expressive Ferrington and Donnelly Creek vineyards, both located outside the town of Boonville, as well as our benchmark estate Savoy Vineyard. This wine is 100% Pinot Noir, made of a blend of select clones including Pommard, Mt. Eden, Martini and Dijon.
Production Notes
The fruit was harvested September 2nd through October 4th at an average of 24.1° 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, 36% of which were new. Coopers include Cadus, Rousseau, Quintessence, Tremeaux, and Sirugue.
