2010 Drew Morning Dew Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 165 cases, $47. The second release from this vineyard. Rochioli selection and clone “828.” The Rochioli block is planted in lighter soils providing finesse and charm while the “828” block is planted in darker, more clay-imbued soils giving more power and richness. 50% whole cluster. 50% native fermentation. Aged 11 months in 30% new French oak barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Appealing aromas of cherry, spice and leaf. A cherry-driven wine in a mid weight style with a compliment of spice. Well-balanced with gossamer tannins and some finishing drive. I liked this wine a lot and was impressed by how well it aged.
