2019 PINOT NOIR
APPELLATION: Anderson Valley
Shorter barrel aging, no new oak, and fermented with minimal extraction to allow for an early release. The 2019 Anderson Valley Constant Disruptions is a bright, enticing, and wondrous Pinot Noir.
Crunchy light strawberry, red apple skin, and geranium notes highlight the heady aromatics. The vibrant mid-palate reveals inviting elements of pomegranate, cranberry, and green tea. Hints of cola, sandalwood, and pine needles complete the refined finish.
APPELLATION: Mendocino County
THE PLACE & PROCESS:
Two parcels of gnarled century old vines. Small bits of Carignan and Cinsault interplanted with the Zinfandel. The dry farmed and head pruned vines produce a rich and expressive wine.
Bold aromatics weave a careful balance between dark fruits and spice. Black cherry, huckleberry, and subtle pink peppercorn notes elevate the powerful aromas. The soft mid-palate unfolds with accents of cassis, blackberry, and mocha. The textured finish exhibits supple tannins, ample acidity, and elements of ripe plum, eucalyptus, and toffee.
