2016 Filigreen Farms Pinot Noir

2016 Filigreen Farm Pinot Noir

A new wine for us from the stunning, certified biodynamic, Filigreen Farm

Anderson Valley

Anderson Valley Pinot Noir can be magical. Filigreen Farm is a biodynamic land trust lovingly cared for by Chris and Steph Tebbuts. A visit to the farm is always nourishing for both the bountiful fruits available for snacking (mulberries, blueberries, apples, pears, cherries and more!) and the fascinating and stimulating conversations. The Pinot Noir block is adjacent to the block of Pinot Gris we have made since 2014 and the resulting wine boasts a savory vein that would make the varietals Burgundian ancestry proud.

Tasting Note: An explosive nose of currants, black cherry, rose petals and an intriguing smell of greenery that evokes pleasant memories of driving through the redwoods of Anderson Valley. The palate is nuanced with cranberry and that pop of black cherry. There is a great savory vein running throughout that juicy profile. Pair this ethereal wine with spring lamb.
