2005 Raye’s Hill Vineyards & Winery Henneberg Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., 280 cases, $26. Released January 2008. The 14-acre Henneberg Vineyard is owned by Matt and Jeannie Henneberg and is located in the deep end of the Anderson Valley. 100% Pommard clone. 3-day cold soak, fermentation in 1-ton open top fermenters, pressed into French oak barrels and aged for 16 months. · This is a pleasing wine that has attractive aromas and flavors of brown-spiced ripe cherries and cola. Good backbone of ripe tannins and brisk acidity on the refreshing finish. A great value in a hand crafted artisan Pinot Noir. All the Raye’s Hill Pinot Noirs are similarly priced.
