Anderson Valley Estate Bottled Dry Gewürtztraminer 2016

Pale white, very good clarity. Floral, almond and wood notes in nose. Dry, honey, spice and citrus flavors with great length, almost nutty, with crisp finish, tartaric acid dominant with a touch of malic and citric. Moderate skin astringency. Slightly bitter aftertaste with malic-citric dominant. Super wine. 2534 cases produced. Tasting notes from their website note importance of sur lie aging and trellising with increased shade to improve development of varietal aromatics in juice. — 5 days ago

Première Reserve Anderson Valley Chardonnay 1990

Initially questionable, yet eventually transformative. Elegant red fruits, some VA, but impressive considering its age. — 15 days ago

Had the 2014 and 2015 within a week of each other - fruit way better on the ‘15 but both are still expressive - hints of cedar, dust and earthen — 12 days ago

"Les Voisins" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2012

Colour of bright light ruby. Smoky and varnishy red fruits: red currant and red cherry on the nose. The palate is light to medium weight with medium intensity. A little noticeable oak on the palate but not intrusive. With time in decanter the nose developed a foresty complexity - a beautiful floral sappy perfume. This is why we love Pinot Noir. I have had Australian Pinot Noirs similar to this - reminiscent of Mornington Peninsula IMO. — 5 days ago

Ferrari-Carano

Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Baked red cherries, cocoa powder, hints of cinnamon, herbs, black pepper, smokiness, and Dr. Pepper on the nose. Kirsch and tart raspberry on the palate, hints of amaretto and milk chocolate with a peppery zestiness at the back of the mouth on the finish. Great and interesting characteristic showing of the varietal — 5 days ago

Ferrington Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

It’s pizza and Pinot; pre-celebration b/4 my birthday tomorrow celebrating at the 30th anniversary Cain 5 in the vineyard luncheon with music and many old vintages of Cain 5. Big nose — strawberry, cherry and plum fruit lingering with tobacco, wet leaves and subtle vanilla. Medium red/purple color. Cherry taste and minerals initially. As it lingers on the tongue, sour raspberry, tannins and cedar come out . Nice acidity. Enjoying the beautiful sunset evening with this wine!! — a month ago

Nash Mill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Amazing, lovely and delicious Anderson Valley Pinot Noir.

Chocolate chip cookie dough, dried cherries, scent of mushroom ... just well rounded, gentle, food friendly (and good on it's own) Pinot Noir that isn't too candied or fruit forward.

Filigreen Farm Pinot Gris 2017

This was a darker rose color than the previous bottle I had about a year ago. Cranberry and unripe strawberry. Didn’t see much of a difference on day 2, but no decline as well. Reminded me of my Grandpa’s cellar. — 17 days ago
