Winemaker Notes

Peters Vineyard once again offers incredible immediacy with aromas and flavors of raspberry, cherry and perfumed carnation. This is gracious Sonoma Coast pinot, inviting and vibrant with balancing tension. The elegant and well-integrated nature of Peters draws you in, making it hard not to drink right now for all of its fresh beauty.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Pinot Noir Peters Vineyard, pale to medium ruby-purple in the glass, is an incredibly elegant wine. The nose begins with delicate dried roses, orange peel, cinnamon, aniseed, rhubarb and red berry aromas supported by an underlying sense of amaro-like spiciness. The light to medium-bodied palate is delicately styled and gently perfumed with a silky texture and fresh acidity to lift the ethereal finish.

Wine & Spirits
For the second vintage in a row, the Anthill team—winemakers Anthony Filiberti, David Low and Webster Marquez—seem to have caught their Peters Vineyard pinot noir at the exact right moment of ripeness. (Usually, it’s their tiny production of syrah from Randy Peters’s vines in the hills west of Sebastopol that stands out for me). This wine comes from a parcel planted in the 1980s, at the base of a hill where the cold air settles, making it the last spot to ripen in the vineyard. Their 2018 comes alive the moment it’s poured into the glass, glowing red in color and flavor, gentle and secure in its transparent elegance. The strawberry and tart cranberry flavors feel cool, and the wine itself is cooling as it lasts with dynamic complexity.

Anthill Farms is an exciting project that focuses on producing exceptional Pinot Noir from a broad range of North Coast vineyards. The properties are managed with intensive and meticulous farming practices, with minimal ecological impact. As for winemaking, there are two unchanging goals: to make wines that express the growing site and the characteristics of the vintage above all else, and to make wines that, simply put, taste good. These goals require gentle handling from crushing to bottling, judicious use of oak, and, perhaps most importantly, leaving the wine alone as much as possible. “We didn’t know whether the name was really great or really dumb,” admits Anthill Farms Winery partner Webster Marquez. “It came about because we’re all winemakers and people would see us all scrambling around trying to grab the same hose at once; they said it was like watching a bunch of ants.” This trio of ants—Marquez, Anthony Filiberti and David Low—met while working at Sonoma’s Williams Selyem. Says Marquez, “We realized that we have the same approach: using Pinot Noir—the most ‘transparent’ grape in the world—to communicate the way vineyards from cooler areas create distinctive wines.” The partners themselves farm many of the small plots where they buy their grapes, and the results of this labor of love are remarkably seductive wines that combine concentration and finesse. Now that the company has grown from producing 200 cases in 2004 to 1,800 this year, the trio’s work is becoming ever more demanding. Notes Marquez, “It’s a good thing we’re young and don’t need much sleep.” –Food & Wine Magazine’s “Most Promising New Winery” 2009

The Sonoma Coast AVA is large in area but, not counting overlapping regions like Russian River Valley, only has a few thousand acres of grapevines—and it’s no wonder. Much of the region is rugged and not easily accessible. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean’s fog and cool breezes limits the varieties that can be cultivated, but it proves to be an ideal environment for high quality Pinot Noir.

Since fog is a frequent fact of life here, as are heavy marine layers that sometimes bring rain, the best vineyards are wisely planted above the fog line, on picturesque ridges that capture enough sun to provide even ripening. That, with the overnight drop in temperature that reliably preserves acidity, results in fine expressions of Pinot Noir that often receive tremendous critic and consumer praise alike, and are often in high demand.
