Domaine Anderson Pinot Noir 2019
|California, North Coast, Anderson Valley
Vivacious from the go, with pronounced aromas of black cherry and plum, bittersweet cacao, blackberry bush, bramble and mushroomy forest floor. The palate follows through, adding additional layering of black tea and violet potpourri. Let the fine-grained tannins tickle your tongue, the vibrant acidity give you that prickle of energy and that long, lengthy finish convince you of another sip.
The 2019 Pinot Noir Estate Vineyard is a very pretty, fragrant wine redolent of crushed red berry fruit, chalk, mint, white pepper and orange peel. I admire its energy, class and transparent expression of Anderson Valley. This airy, weightless Pinot is a total charmer.
Medium ruby, the 2019 Pinot Noir Estate features Bing cherries, cranberries, woodsmoke and dried herbs on the nose, with nuances of licorice and bitters. The light-bodied palate is soft, bright and juicy, with understated yet layered fruits and a satisfying, spicy finish.
Bright and racy, with a savory streak amid pomegranate and damson plum notes, while a tangy blood orange accent zips up the finish. Drink now through 2023. 830 cases made.
