2016 Waits-Mast Nash Mill Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

13.3% alc., $Pre-release. Vineyard is located at the cool northern end of Anderson Valley. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. The nose balances aromas of cherry, fertile earth and oak. Tasty mid weight flavors of black cherry and raspberry are framed by gracious tannins. Complimentary oak highlights ply the background. The wine has an appealingly polished texture. The fruit always stands out from this vineyard. Score: 92. Reviewed February 23, 2019
