2014 WALT "The Corners" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir - The Corners Vineyard
The Corners Pinot Noir displays warm aromatics of five spice, ripe blue fruit, and black cherry. Roasted stems bring a streamlined and focused quality to the mouthfeel. The palate is smooth with dark berry character, interlaced with warm, spicy barrel leading into a sweet, lingering finish.
In 2014, an exceptionally dry winter and warm spring led to an early bud break. The growing season ran ahead of schedule all year. The lower yields produced concentrated, complex, and age-worthy wines.
