  • 2019 FEL Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley
    Anderson Valley
    Expand
    Our 2019 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir reflects the multiple vineyards from which it is sourced and is an excellent example of what makes Anderson Valley such a special place to farm Pinot Noir. Vineyards in the in-land end of the valley are more protected from the constant coastal breeze off the Pacific and provide lovely fruit aromas of black cherry, raspberry, and plum. Vineyards planted in what locals call the “Deep End” close to the ocean are even cooler and the Pinot Noir is more spice driven with notes of cedar, cigar box, and cinnamon. The balance of these fruit and spice components shows off the complexity found in the appellation and the elegantly balanced tannins provide a luscious, lingering finish.
    Suggested Retail Price: $40
  • 2019 FEL Pinot Noir, Savoy Vineyard
    Anderson Valley
    Expand
    Our flagship Pinot Noir is always a reflection of the beautiful site from which the grapes are grown. Savoy Vineyard is perched above the Navarro River bench looking out at the last stand of old-growth redwoods in Anderson Valley. The wildness of the forest is reflected in the wine with aromas of conifer needles, native mint, and wild brambleberries. The nose also includes notes of black cherry, cedar, and cinnamon. Texturally, Savoy Pinot Noir is always a compelling wine with silky tannins that give great length to the mouth and support flavors of cherry, blackberry, and black tea.
    Suggested Retail Price: $75
  • 2019 FEL Pinot Noir, Ferrington Vineyard
    Anderson Valley
    Expand
    Of all our Pinot Noirs, Ferrington Vineyard is always the most elegant and red fruit driven. Aromatics of mountain strawberry, crushed raspberry, and blood orange practically leap from the glass. Hints of mint, sun tea, and orange peel add further depth to the nose. The mouth is full of more red fruit flavors including raspberry, red currant, and pomegranate. Notes of clove and cinnamon layer on complexity while the refreshing acidity and delicate tannins make this elegant wine a versatile pairing with all but the heaviest dishes.
    Suggested Retail Price: $65
  • 2019 FEL Pinot Noir, Wendling Vineyard
    Anderson Valley
    Expand
    The density and darkness of Wendling Pinot Noir is always a bit of a surprise considering the site’s proximity to the cold Pacific Ocean. The nose features aromas of black cherry, cassis, cocoa, and Earl Grey tea, while the mouth is loaded with flavors of blackberry reduction, dark chocolate, and cinnamon. A well-structured wine, reflective of the steep hillside on which it was grown, its dense tannins provide great length in the mouth that is supported by the wine’s natural acidity.
    Suggested Retail Price: $65
