Cakebread Two Creeks Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||California, North Coast, Anderson Valley|
The 2017 Pinot Noir Two Creeks is produced from 100% estate fruit, with 77% coming from their Annahala vineyard and 23% from Apple Barn vineyard. It was fermented with a proportion of stems and native yeast, then aged 10 months in 41% new French oak. Pale ruby-purple in color, it leaps from the glass with vivacious redcurrant jelly, black raspberries and rhubarb scents plus touches of wild thyme, cloves, rose hip tea and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a firm structure of chewy tannins and lovely freshness defining the red berry and earthy layers, finishing with an herbal lift.
