2019 WALT The Corners Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir - The Corners
"Lively and spicy, with lithe flavors of cedar box, cherry tart and forest floor that are seamlessly integrated and filled with spicy loaminess. The supple and well-cut finish shows plenty of toastiness."
Our estate vineyard lies on the west end of
Anderson Valley, near the town of Boonville.
Planted on hillside slopes with gravelly clay soils
and southern exposures
Warm Afternoon Sun
Fully ripens grapes, while cool breezes from the
Pacific Ocean—only 12 miles away—
extends the growing season
Pale ruby in color with nuanced aromas of crushed blueberries, wet stone and forest floor. The palate is focused and dense, with spicy stem notes bringing complexity and grip. Layered flavors of dark fruit, baking spice and earth lead into a supple and lengthy finish.
A unique vineyard from 'The Corner' of Anderson Valley. This site is considered to be special due to the steep hillsides, aspect, and light gravelly soils that combine to create optimal ripening conditions. This very rugged vineyard continuously produces fruit of great depth and character. Our 'Corners" Pinot Noir is typically sourced from the upper elevation blocks (pommard clone) , where small vines and berries produce a concentrated and opulent wine.
