2016 Anderson Valley Woodenhead Pinot Noir Woodenhead Vintners

Anderson Valley Woodenhead Pinot Noir 2016

a Pinot Noir from Anderson ValleyCA
$60 per bottle

Beautiful aromatics rise on pouring into the glass. Very noticeable. Dark and bright ruby red color. Sandalwood, spice, creamy oak, and vetiver perfume, incense-like, dark plum and sage bouquet. Quite complex on the nose. Fun! Screaming flavors on the palate that reach way back into the mouth. Juicy mouthwatering, packed with intensity. Black raspberry, root beer, strong green and black tea flavors. Great grip and structure. Silky, long and satisfying, magical, secretive, wanting to show more. This wine I must say is GREAT! World-class Pinot in my humble opinion. Will cellar well for another 4-5 years at least, built to last. Sometimes you get lucky, and everything being in alignment produces a truly wonderful wine. Nothing more can be said. Smart buyers will stock up. As always, the pairing for this wine is duck, maybe with a huckleberry sauce. 36-year-old vines, clones of Pommard #5, Mount Eden #37. Old and venerable vines.
