2017 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (1 x 750 ml)
The Ferrington Vineyards property, located approximately 100 miles north of San Francisco and 17 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, is in a fertile pocket of land found at the edge of the northeastern foothills of Mendocino Countys Anderson Valley AVA. Between 360 and 440 feet above sea level, the three acres produce approximately 2.5 tons per acre of bright, complex fruit. Goorgian Vineyard is located at the northwestern end of the Anderson Valley, 10 miles east of the Pacific Ocean and situated on steep rocky north-west facing slopes with an elevation ranging from 200-350 feet. From its highest point you can see down the southeastern end of the valley.
This Pinot Noir features aromas of brambly raspberry, wild strawberry, red plum, and baking spice. The palate combines a broad mouthfeel with a juicy center of black plum and dark chocolate, that carry through to the finish with a tangy acidity.- Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies
Getting right to the fruity point without hesitation on the nose and showing a fine mix of cherries and red berries overlain by a sensible and sympathetic veneer of sweet oak, this appellation bottling from Mendocino's Anderson Valley follows suit once in the mouth with solid, well-extracted flavors that lean slightly more to black fruits than to red. It is a wine that offers plenty to like at the moment yet impresses as having the structure and fleshy reserve to age, and we see it gaining additional grace over the course of the next three to four years.- Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (November 2019)
