We crafted 75 superb cases of this single vineyard Pinot Noir from the low yielding Anne Katherina Vineyard in Sonoma's Carneros region. Aging for 16 months in 45% new French oak barrels gives this Pinot strong, yet lovely, aromas of roses and violets, as well as a gorgeous dark ruby/garnet color. Flavors of white truffles and Hen-of-the-Woods mushrooms give way to traces of forest floor that take you to a lingering finish. We love this wine with an elegant salmon dish, but it can also stand up to a rib-eye. If you seek terroir from your wine, here it is, and will stay for better than ten years.
