The aromatics this wine are bright with sweet notes of black cherry, pomegranate, boysenberry, and truffle. Hints of cinnamon, caraway, and toast are reflective of both Anderson Valley’s spice driven terroir, and the extended aging in French oak barrels. In the mouth, the wine is loaded with rich flavors of dark fruit, cocoa, and spice. The palate is refined with pleasant acidity and elegant tannins that continue to unfold after the last sip. This is a generous wine that will continue to evolve and drink well for at least half a decade.
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com - "The 2014 Fel Anderson Valley Pinot Noir offers a richness and purity that is often elusive with this grape variety. Pinot Noir, always a balancing act, sometimes ends up over-extracted when wineries try to eke out power and depth. This wine, artfully escaping those pitfalls, exhibits superb balance. The red fruit and savory notes pair it perfectly with lightly grilled salmon. Drinks nicely now. (Tasted: November 2, 2016, San Francisco, CA)"
