2019 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 Vineyards 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. Both vineyards are managed by our long-time grape growing partner, Paul Ardzrooni.
The 2019 growing season in Anderson Valley started off with a wet spring, causing bud break and bloom to occur later than normal. The weather remained moderate through most of the season; canopies were healthy, and full allowing for gradual ripening. The starting date of harvest was average compared to previous years, with yields coming in light to normal. With lighter yields, vines were able to produce fruit with exceptional quality, balanced acidity, and concentrated flavors and aromas.
The 2019 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir features inviting aromas of blueberry, red plum, vanilla and hibiscus. The bright palate combines juicy layers of dried orange peel, raspberry and cran-rhubarb, which carries through to a well-structured finish.- Winemakers Sean Thompson, Jessica Koga and Hugh Davies
