Pinot Noir, Ferrington Vineyard, Anderson Valley
The 2015 Pinot Noir Ferrington Vineyard, from a site in Anderson Valley, is wonderfully lush, aromatic and expressive. All of the natural richness of the vintage comes through in this ample, voluptuous wine. A rush of succulent red cherry, blood orange, spice, star anise and rose petal builds into the powerful, flamboyant finish. What a gorgeous wine this is.
Well-structured, offering a firm mix of raspberry, licorice, dusty herb and cedar flavors, with the structure and density making this a candidate for short-term cellaring. Best from 2019 through 2026. 413 cases made.
A compelling combination of well-integrated oak spices and forward, opulent fruit flavors make this full-bodied wine almost irresistible. It has a smooth texture, layered and concentrated notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, new leather, wood smoke, cooked cherries and ripe plums supported by moderate tannins and good fruit acidity.
The Wine Advocate
“Medium to deep ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Ferrington Vineyard has a drop-dead gorgeous perfume of violets, rose hip tea, warm raspberries and kirsch with suggestions of garrigue, dried lavender, Provence herbs and tilled soil."
