2019 Wentworth 'Nash Mill Vineyard' Pinot Noir Anderson Valley
Made from Dijon clones 115 and 667 and a small percentage of Pommard 5. Grapes farmed organically at NMV, our Anderson Valley Estate Vineyard which is located on a south-facing slope in the valley hills between Philo and Navarro. Native yeast fermentation, 46% whole cluster. Malolactic fermentation and elevage in mix of new and neutral French oak. 46% new oak. ABV 13%. 190 cases produced. Unfined and unfiltered.
This nervy, appetizing and tightly balanced wine holds back a bit from complete ripeness to bring out tangy red- and black-cherry aromas, raspberry and cranberry flavors and a moderately tannic texture on a medium body. Made with native yeast, 45% of whole clusters and one-third new French barrels, it's a great showing in a slightly restrained style.
