2014 Ferrington Vineyard Pinot Noir

Anderson Valley

Anderson Valley is where it all began for MacPhail, and you can’t begin to talk about Anderson Valley without paying homage to the Ferrington Vineyard. It’s one of the two most easterly vineyards (Anderson Creek shares a fenceline) and is prized by those who love Pinot Noir.

In our first bottling since the 2010 vintage, you’ll find bright and lively red cherry notes with Asian Five Spice, white pepper and the expected backbone of Anderson Valley acid, framing herbal notes and a touch of earthiness. Complex and well structured, the wine opens in your glass and offers an ever more satisfying expression of Anderson Valley, the measuring stick for all others.

Winemaking:

  • Grapes are hand-picked, hand sorted twice, 100% de-stemmed
  • Five day cold maceration pre-fermentation

  • Aged 11 months sur lie in French Oak, 26% new, balance once and twice filled
  • New French Coopers: Ermitage AV
  • Bottled 100% unfined & unfiltered August 3, 2015 
  • This is the first MacPhail Ferrington Pinot Noir since vintage 2010

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
~ 92 Pts. / "Silky and deep with elegant style and rich cherry, berry and juicy acidity; deep and ripe, long and stylish. " - Anthony Dias Blue, Tasting Panel Magazine
Ratings
~ 91 Pts. "Outstanding" / “Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. The nose leads with aromas of black cherry, toast and tobacco. Mid-weight flavors of oak-kissed black cherry and blackberry fruits have noticeable intensity and freshness. The tannins are nicely balanced, there is a hint of welcome spice, and the deep cherry finish impresses. The wine attracts more attention with time in the glass.” - Rusty Gaffney, PinotFile
