Lot 527 | 2014 Anderson Valley
Elegant, pure Pinot Noir from one of California's smallest and coldest winegrowing regions. Food & Wine 2016 Selection "5 Go To Wines For Summer."
Free Ground Shipping on all orders of 12 or more bottles.
Pale garnet in the glass and very pure on the nose, with just a kiss of oak imparted from aging in 2nd and 3rd fill oak barrels. It starts with bing cherry, a kiss of florals and hint of black peppercorns on the nose, but becomes significantly richer with a little air adding a nice raspberry compote component to the cherry. Plush on the palate, with beautifully rendered cherry and raspberry fruit that resounds in a scrumptious finish. Is this Burgundy in California? No, its classic cool-climate California Pinot Noir, fruit-driven but pure and nuanced with lush tannins that make it very approachable.

Burgundian with a hint of fruit
A lovely surprise as I am not a big fan of overly fruity CA Pinots. This is soft and elegant with bits of spice and hints of fruit. Not as earthy as French Pinots but on that style. I'm becoming a bigger fan of Anderson Valley Pinots.
I am not a big Pinot fan, but this was a good one
This is a pinot that I would drink every night.
A basic weeknight bottle. I don't love it, but it's decent for the price.
Great value Pinot
This has been our go-to Pinot for about 8 months now and it is very dependable. Very good balance and enough nuance to keep you interested. Highly recommended.
I was very pleased with this bold taste. Be sure to give ample time to breathe. I bought two bottles so will share next bottle with friends.
The wine is very light to the taste. Maybe better with the next bottle. Not much body on first bottle.
Getting better over time
Bought a bunch in August and tried it in Sep. It was a little tight and flowery. No my fav. Opened another in Jan. DANG! Night and day. Great flavor, great finish, a wine that will make you love pinots if you don't already.
Light, delicious Pinot with mild tannins. Very drinkable with lovely rosy red hues. Dark cherry hints and a taste of raspberry. We pared this Pinot with Shrimp Scampi.
The Anderson Valley Pinot tells you that you can get a really good Pinot for less than $20 and it's made in the USA.
