2013 Hein Vineyard Pinot Noir
Originally thought to be too cold for Pinot Noir, this far deep-end Vineyard at the North Western boarder of the Anderson Valley really is pushing the limits of where our favorite grape will grow. This cold site requires excruciating attention to ensure even and slow ripening while keeping the elements at bay. The result? Nothing less than perfect: it’s beautiful and light Pinot Noir containing more depth than 99% of other Northern California Pinots. A light anise flavor compliments the earthy red fruit flavors that highlight this wine.
