BETWIXT PINOT NOIR, HELLUVA VINEYARD, ANDERSON VALLEY 2015
NVWE Notes: Elegant, age-worthy and already satisfying, this Pinot Noir is the equal of much more expensive bottlings. The nose is a medley of wild strawberry, cranberry, pomegranate, red currant, orange peel and red rose petal, with counterpoints of pink peppercorn, cardamom and forest mushrooms. On the palate the mouth-feel shows both polished tannins and textural delicacy, while the flavors are a slightly more coiled replica of the aromas. With airing the wine unfolds to reveal a lingering, structured yet decidedly feminine character and lovely flavors that include emerging suggestions of trumpet mushrooms and Panetone. It should improve for eighteen to thirty six months and possibly beyond. 85 cases made.
Subtle, intricate aromas and equally sophisticated flavors of baking spices, tamarind and cherries make this a fascinating wine to taste. It's full bodied but lithe. Energizing acidity and firm tannins give it great structure and help carry the complex flavors through a lingering finish.
