Nervy, yet lush, the 2016 Maggy Hawk's aromatics scream flavors of ripe blueberry, wet stones and dried herbs out of the glass.  On the palate, medium grit tannins gvie the wine backbone and play beautifully with the lush fruit. This wine should continue to improve over the next 3-5 years, but with a gentle decanting the wine is more than fit for drinking now.

Vintage Notes: 

The 2016 growing season had an early start partly due to winter and spring rains, where the vines were reinvigorated after the drought conditions from previous years.  Spring brought warmer weather in ideal timing for bud break, resulting in a perfect yield of fruit in time for a mid-September harvest. 

Vineyard Notes: 

Located in the "deep end" of the Anderson Valley, Maggy Hawk Vineyard is located near the Mendocino Coast, alongside the Pacific Ocean.  With the cool, coastal influence from the Pacific Ocean, this is the most late ripening part of the valley.  Planted to only Pinot Noir on 16 different blocks, Maggy Hawk Vineyard contains numerous clonal selections planted on many different aspects and elevations.
