2013 Anderson Valley Deep End Vineyard Pinot Noir

Released in February, 2016, our 2013 vintage exhibits wonderful harmony and balance. Medium light garnet color in the glass, pleasant aromas of black cherry and savory herbs. On the palate an array of dark fruits including spiced black cherries, raspberries and pomegranate, with hints of toasty oak. The finish is smooth, round and warming. This earthy pinot will pair beautifully with the traditional lighter fare of pork and fowl but also shines with charcuterie plates, spicy sausage, steak and strong cheeses.
