Our 2021 'The Corners' Pinot Noir opens with effusive aromas of freshly turned earth, blue fruit, and paprika. The palate is balanced and central, with flavors of fresh red cherry, fig, violet pastille and a hint of Pennyroyal . Bright, crunchy acidity complements the long and fruit forward finish.
Freshly Turned Earth
Fresh Red Cherry
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.
