2015 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.

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.  "Tannin management in 2015 was the key to quality and when working with fruit from Anderson Valley, and particulary Wightman House Vineyard, you need good viticulture and precise picking decisions to bring balance to the final wine.  This wine is always intense and has a bright beautiful Beaujolais-like quality on the nose.  A big, rich, ripe entry leads to black tea and bergamot notes surrounded by black cherry and hints of smoke." - Matt Courtney, Winemaker
