Gros Ventre Cellars Cerise Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

$48

This highly coveted fruit is only sold to a handful of producers, and we are grateful to the Knez family for sharing their prized bio-dynamically farmed grapes with us. Sitting high above the Anderson Valley floor, this rocky, wind and fog-swept vineyard continues to impress. The 2013 exhibits aromas of cherry, pomegranate, and strawberry, coupled with hints of anise, pipe tobacco, sage, and rose petal. Modest tannins and acidity provides backbone for this delicate yet structured wine. Production: 143 cases Clones: Pommard, 115, 667 Élevage: 11 months in 17% new French oak Alcohol: 13.5%

Once again, Nick slipped something in my mouth and I have to thank him on the interweb. When does it end? Never heard of these peeps but I highly recommend. I never spell recommend correctly.

A bit too early for this puppy but you can tell it will be good down the road. Strawberries and jam on the nose, complex finish that lingers.

Walks that fine line between grounded in earth tones with savory notes in the nose and a richness of fruit that could only come from coastal sonoma sites with plenty of minutes in the sunshine. Thoroughly enjoyed with a little poutine thrown together from some braised beef cheeks, Wisconsin cheddar curds, and good ol russets.
