Pinot Noir, Ferrington Vineyards, Anderson Valley
The Wine Advocate
Pale to medium ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir Ferrington Vineyards was aged 15 months in 25% new oak. The nose features red licorice, cardamom, tree bark and bitters over a core of red and black cherries and raspberries. The medium-bodied palate is bright and spicy with ripe red fruits, a grainy frame and great freshness on the long finish. Lovely! 325 cases produced.
The Tasting Panel
From the family behind Schramsberg Vineyards, the eighth vintage of this Pinot Noir is stunning. A nose of sweet cherry and rose petal leads to a delicate mouthfeel that whispers clues of sweet tobacco and salted strawberry jam. The finish of tilled soil shows balance and depth.
