2016 Wightman House Vineyard Pinot Noir

This tiny vineyard (1.68 acres) is planted to a single clone and can only be described as a labor of love.  MacPhail Wines has a ten-year history with the vineyard, and is the only winery sourcing fruit here.  The Martini clone of Pinot Noir produces distinctive fruit with earthy, herbal notes often described as robust, and just as often as a favorite of Anderson Valley.

EDIT

Located on the valley floor in Boonveille, the Wightman House Vineyard hets full sun bit is dramatically impacted by its closeness to Anderson Creek, where cool coastal breezes are drawn in, which allows fruit to pause and gain complexity before being greeted by the warm sun.  This wine is always complex and delivers rich, earthy aromas of mushroom and forest floor. Dense, full tannins provide roundness and support as black cherry and plum harmonize with savory notes of cardamom to entertain the palate.
