2015 Goorgian Vineyard Pinot Noir (1 X 750 ML)
The Goorgian Vineyards are located at the northwestern end of the Anderson Valley, 10 miles east of the Pacific Ocean and situated on steep, rocky northwest facing slopes with an elevation ranging from 200-350 feet. Shallow loamy topsoil facilitates excellent drainage above a layer of sandstone and shale, stressing the roots to reach for nutrients and water. Cooler daily temperatures are ideal for Pinot Noir with nightly coastal breezes dropping into the 50’s, creating the perfect sugar to acid balance in the grapes. This environment provides a long, even growing season which delivers mature fruit depth with a vibrant, acidic backbone.
This Goorgian Pinot Noir leads with dense aromas of blackberry, dark cherry roasted coffee and pine forest. The focused palate features ripe strawberry, chocolate blueberry, vanilla and dried orange peel, and ends with a long finish.- Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies
Among the richer wines of the new Davies bunch and a Pinot that exhibits considerable fruity depth, this one from the Goorgian Vineyards is mouthfilling wine of fine concentration, yet it never once threatens to be too much of a good thing. It is optimally ripened with deft highlights of oak and sweet soils to its ongoing themes of black cherries, and it finishes with a light touch of tannin that signals its best days lie a few years down the line. If it is impressive now, it will be more so with age, and it is sure to reward three or four years of patience.- Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (October 2017)
