2019 FEL Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley
Our 2019 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir reflects the multiple vineyards from which it is sourced and is an excellent example of what makes Anderson Valley such a special place to farm Pinot Noir. Vineyards in the in-land end of the valley are more protected from the constant coastal breeze off the Pacific and provide lovely fruit aromas of black cherry, raspberry, and plum. Vineyards planted in what locals call the “Deep End” close to the ocean are even cooler and the Pinot Noir is more spice driven with notes of cedar, cigar box, and cinnamon. The balance of these fruit and spice components shows off the complexity found in the appellation and the elegantly balanced tannins provide a luscious, lingering finish.
