The nose is intense and mixing violet, rose and black cherry components. Grace and harmony show on the palate with a mix of gentle spice, violet, rose and red fruit dancing together. The depth and complexity of the wine is obvious and continues with a long and energetic finish. Around a core of mineral notes, it shows balance and freshness, a true picture of the best of what Anderson Valley can provide.

2018 will be remembered as a colder and slower season in Anderson Valley, producing wines with profound elegance and delicacies. A mild spring allowed for a nice crop set and it was followed with a “cold” summer for our standard. It resulted in slow maturing and perfect conditions for Pinot Noir, retaining freshness while developing intricate complexity of flavors.
Pairs well with duck breast and cherry mostarda, grilled salmon.
