The Anthill Farms Hamony Lane Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015: A fruity and elegant Pinot Noir
The Anthill Farms Harmony Lane Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015 is made from Pinot Noir grapes sourced from a ridge between Graton and Occidental, which is often called the Occidental Ridge or Harrison Grade. The vineyard extends over 3 acres of fine Goldridge soil, around 800 feet above sea level. The elevation of the vineyard lifts the vines to the marine layer. The surrounding marine fog creates a dynamic cool-and-warm environment, resulting in wines of tight precision.
The Harmony Lane Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015 from Anthill Farms offers intense floral fragrances, whose intensity can easily be attributed to the whole cluster approach in producing this wine. Hints of dark cherry, mint and lavender appear on the nose as well. On the palate this single-varietal red wine reveals itself to be quite succulent and juicy, with elegant tannins complementing tons of fresh red fruit. The wine delivers at the end a long and satisfying finish, which lingers on the palate. The wine can be enjoyed young or kept for 3-8 years.
