2021 Annie's Old Vines - Pinot Noir
Named for the winemaker's mother, Annie's Old Vines Pinot Nlir is an "old vine" selection from a small vineyard outside the town of Sonoma. The original vineyard with an unknown clone of Pinot comprises two blocks on a slightly sloping southern facing hillside just under two acres. The 2021 Annie's Old Vines Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast fermented on native yeast with 100% whole clusters. The wine completed malolactic fermentation naturally in barrel and aged twelve months in all neutral French oak barrels. We performed one racking to stainless steel prior to bottling, unfined and unfiltered.
The 2021 Annie's displays a bristling stemmy juiciness, with tart strawberry and black pepper undertones, and spicy plum, vine leaf, and dark cocoa on the finish. A very gentle wine with a sincere complexity of flavors. Enjoyable now, best between 2025-2027. Four barrels; 91 cases produced.
Bottled by hand at the winery.
Sustainably farmed (organic non-certified).
