2015 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. Whereas in other years, the aromas are a bit more on the red fruit and floral spectrum, the 2015 Hein has an unmistakable aroma of lightly roasted coffee, white pepper and gingerbread. The flavors are a sinilar blend of spice to pair with black fruit and an earth finish.
