2020 Annahala Ranch Pinot Noir Anderson Valley
Our Annahala Ranch sits on 60 acres in the southern end of Mendocino County’s Anderson Valley. This former apple orchard, with its closer proximity to the Pacific Ocean compared to its sister vineyard, Apple Barn, spends more time in fog. Vines at our Annahala Ranch are planted in loamy soils and represent a selection of high-quality pinot noir clones, including Dijon 114, 667 and 777, and clone 828. This diversity of clones enhances the wine’s complexity: Dijon clones tend to impart perfume and intense black cherry characters, while clone 828 contributes elegant texture and a hint of dried rose petals.
