Winemaker's Notes

There is simply no replacing well-farmed, older-vines. The nuances, texture and innate complexity that these older vines provide are not qualities that a winemaker can fake. You either have these older vines and are able to bring forth these positive elements or you don't. With Ana Vineyard these qualities make for incredible aromatics of rose petals, freshly cooked lamb, and earth toned red-spices. The texture is always graceful, at once being mouth-filling but never in an aggressive way. The finish is long, subtle and complete. In a vintage like 2009 where most things move toward the big, black and bold, Ana Vineyard retains the characteristics that we love so much about it which are the balance, freshness, subtlety and sexiness of the entire package. There is no mistaking that there is a wealth of intensity in this wine but it is red-fruited to the core in both the aromatic and flavor profiles. The mid-palate is appropriately sweet and viscous without being the least bit overdone and the finish is spicy, long, silky and complex. A classic bottling of Ana Vineyard. Hard to say how much will be produced as we have a host of options.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Pinot Noir Ana Vineyard comes from a site planted in 1978. Already complex aromatically with floral notes, exotic spices, incense, and red fruits, on the palate it is intense, velvety textured, and reveals excellent volume and length. It has enough well-concealed structure to drink well for a decade. "
91 Points

"Medium red. Cherry, Indian spices and dried rose on the fragrant, smoky nose. Ripe and smooth on entry, then tighter in the middle, offering bitter cherry and black raspberry flavors perked up by a slow-mounting mineral quality. Seamless and focused pinot with impressive finishing clarity and smoky persistence. Balanced to age over the next few years but this drinks very well now with some decanting."
