Anderson valley terroir peaks through an oak profile that is particularly robust and clearly evident of the difficulties faced for the 2011 vintage. I am excited to see what the winemaker Bo will do with the bountiful '12 and '13 vintages, particularly regarding the oak regiment!

Slightly over Oaked. Hide the varietal characters of the pinot noir

Robust and round Pinot. Dusty tannins on the back end. Decent acids. I would like this to be dialed a little back to let secondary characteristics pop,......maybe they still will, idk.

2011 vintage. My first Pinot from Anderson Valley. Nice ruby color with earth like flavor and a hint of spice.

By far the best wine I've had so far. I'm pretty new the world of wine but I really love this one

Dark on the nose with flavors of chocolate, tea and earthy tones. Moderate tannins in a long finish
