Our 2011 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir displays earthy, fresh cherry and red raspberry aromas accented by notes of sandalwood and mineral. Medium-bodied and supple on the palate, with fine tannins, the wine delivers juicy black cherry, red currant and black raspberry flavors that persist throughout a long, lively finish featuring bright acidity and a refreshing minerality. Rich, yet elegantly styled, this delicious Pinot Noir will drink beautifully over the next 3-5 years.
The 2011 Cakebread Cellars Pinot Noir comes out of the Anderson Valley and was aged in French Oak for 11 Months. This Pinot is very expressive with aromas of fresh strawberries, earth, toasted wood, asparagus, soy sauce, orange zest, floral notes and a hint of game. Great structure, focused and delicious with lots of spice and minerality on the finish. I would recommend waiting 2-3 years before uncorking this, but there is no rush as it looks to have the potential to last another 5-10 years in the cellar. (Best 2015-2023)
Offers a mix of delicate loamy earth, dried berry, cedar and anise, with wilted rose. Pleasingly complex on the finish.
