2016 Pinot Noir, Tanbark Mill Vineyard, Perrygulch
Anderson Valley Estate
“Perrygulch comes from denser soils and the steeper terrain of the Tanbark Mill Vineyard. The color is deep ruby with intense perfumes from red fruits to spice. The palate shows a lovely balance of ample fullness, durable structure, energy, and finesse. Rather fleshy with a great spine of acidity that shows in the long finish.” – Stéphane Vivier
Our Perrygulch Pinot Noir is planted on a dense loam soil of the same name, on a steep hill found on our 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. Pinot Noir grown in Perrygulch loam tend to be bigger in style, with more mineral, dark fruit and spice notes.
