This 2011 Twomey Anderson Valley Pinot Noir is a perfect example of Pinot from this premier Mendocino County appellation. It has a vibrant blood-red plum color and a nose of fresh cranberries, strawberries, moist earth, Christmas spices and a hint of dark chocolate. This multifaceted wine has a fruit-sweet attack redolent of red forest berries. It expresses the essence of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir as it walks a fine line between detailed focus on the one hand and ripe, plushness on the other. It has a particularly long finish, displaying fine-grained tannins and perfect acid balance. Given proper cellaring, it will give drinking pleasure through 2022.

"This is a cool, marine-influence Pinot with a bright red glow of strawberry fruit. You might find oceanic hints of kelp and seashell within the heady aroma, or you might just chill it slightly and enjoy how easy it is to drink. "
