Flowers Andreen Gale Pinot Noir 2001
The color is immediately noticeable as being deep, but not impenetrable, and very youthful in hue. While certain aromas are quite forward, there is a brooding intensity that needs a bit of air to help reveal the complexities that lie within. Aromas of dark fruits, especially cherry, are the most obvious and engaging. Pleasant notes of smoke and toast, from both grape and barrel, nicely complement and never overpower the fruit. The flavors echo the aromas at this point with the addition of an intriguing minerality that is interwoven into the mid-late palate. The texture, while firm with acid at this young age, is broad and spreading with balanced tannins and just enough grip to indicate this wine will only get better over the next 1-2 years.
Blend of selected barrels predominantly (70%) from our estate vineyard blocks here on Camp Meeting Ridge and our new vineyard off of Fort Ross Road, with the balance (30%) coming from five other vineyards in the coolest sub-zones of the Sonoma Coast appellation.
