Gowan Creek is the home to our winery and offers a perfect mid-valley winegrowing location that combines warmer Anderson Valley elements with coastal fog and cooling influences from the northern end of the valley. As a result, this wine displays lush extraction and a rich palate with voluptuous red and black fruit layers of raspberry, mulberry, blueberry and huckleberry. This juicy core of berry fruit is supported by excellent tannins and undercurrents of mushroom, herbs, charcuterie, violets and oak.
"Dark and tannic, reflecting the vineyards's location in the cooler, foggier northwest, this Pinot Noir is dramatic in depth of flavor. With its core of blackberries, cherries, blueberries, cola and rhubarb, it's tight and rigid now, suggesting 5-6 years in the cellar."
"This is also attractively elegant
with an expressive nose of solidly complex red berries that evidence background hints of spice. There is lovely detail to the
energetic, clean and well-balanced medium-bodied flavors that possess fine length. This is really quite good and worth a look."
