94 Points - Antonio Galloni, May 2021

This wine embodies everything you love about Anderson Valley Pinot; flavors of strawberry, Rainier cherries with hints of spice.

Vintage Notes: 

A very cool growing season allowed us to leisurely pick grapes over a long period of time. This cool weather allowed us to have many different grapes picked at various levels of ripeness and flavor development, while maintaining ideal sugar levels. This gave us a diverse group of wines to blend from at our blending session.

Vineyard Notes: 

The historical Edmeades Vineyard sits along the western side of the small town of Philo in what’s known as the “deep-end” of Anderson Valley. Flanked by the Navarro River, there is a diversity of sandstone soils throughout the vineyard. The Edmeades vineyard is planted with vines facing southwest, allowing this vineyard to receive warmer afternoon weather. This helps to balance the prolonged cool fog influence this vineyard sees throughout the growing season.

Wine Profile: 

Aromas: Strawberries, cherries, lavender, a hint of conifer and wet stones.

Palate: Energetic and lush with excellent mid-palate weight.
