Cakebread Cellars Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2019
100% Pinot Noir. Displays ripe black cherry, blueberry, and red currant aromas accented by notes of sandalwood and mineral. Rich, dense, juicy black cherry, plum, and pomegranate flavors that persist throughout a long, lively finish, featuring beautifully structured tannins, bright acidity, and a refreshing minerality.
Over 39 years ago, Jack Cakebread came to photograph the Napa Valley for a book and while there, he casually mentioned his interest in one day owning a vineyard to some family friends who had a ranch in Rutherford. When he returned home that afternoon, the phone rang and it was the family friends offering to sell their property. He headed back up to the valley that same afternoon to make his best offer, and Cakebread Cellars was born. Dedication to making the highest quality wines and a commitment to family has followed a continuum as their first small vineyard has grown into a thriving internationally distributed wine company. Rich, yet elegantly styled, this delicious Pinot Noir will drink beautifully over the next 3-5 years.
