The 2018 vintage turned up the amplitude on our Anderson Valley Pinot Noir, it is a surprisingly intense wine that retains its elegance and delicacy. The aromatics are dominated by dark flavors of Earl Grey tea, cassis, black licorice, and ganache. Hints of Spanish Cedar and cloves add further spice, while black cherry, the signature fruit of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir, provides the backbone. In the mouth, layers of spice and fruit continue with flavors of blood orange, pomegranate, persimmon, and more black cherry mingle with notes of black tea, dark chocolate, and anis. The bright acid and silky tannins give the wine a fresh vibrancy.

Concentrated but also nervy in texture, this full-bodied wine is driven by pure black-cherry and raspberry flavors while oak accents of cinnamon and nutmeg stay just under the surface.

The 2018 Pinot Noir Anderson Valley is a plump, juicy appellation-level wine to drink now and over the next few years. Dark cherry, plum, hard candy and sweet spice are nicely pushed forward.

This red offers slightly candied red fruit flavors that show concentrated notes of underbrush, ending with a tart finish. Better than previously reviewed. Drink now. 4,552 cases made.
