2015 Pinot Noir Tanbark Mill Vineyard, Pinole
Anderson Valley Estate
18 months in custom French oak; 25% new
“Pinole comes from lighter loam soils of the Tanbark Mill Vineyard. Light ruby and translucent color with a floral perfume character. The palate offers depth of flavor, strength, a lot of minerality, and gorgeous fruit definition. The finish shows precision and elegance.” – Stéphane Vivier
Our Tanbark Mill Vineyard showcases diverse terrain and soil types, producing some exciting wines. This Estate Pinot Noir is planted on deep Pinole loam soil found on the Tanbark Mill Vineyard. The Anderson Valley Estate is located in the west, or “deep end” of the Anderson Valley in Mendocino County. The Navarro River forms the southeast border to the property, and the Pacific Ocean is in close proximity, bringing cool sea breezes and a marine layer blanketing the vineyards, creating the ideal terroir for our estate-grown Burgundian varieties.
