2007 Londer Vineyards Estate Grown Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.95% alc., pH 3.74, 615 cases, $48. Released in the spring 2010. From a 16-acre vineyard planted in clay loam soil in 2001 to five clones of Pinot Noir including Swan, Pommard, 115, 777 and 2A. Aged in 30% new French oak barrels. · Aromas of black cherries with a minty green note. A fruit-driven wine of moderate richness leaving a little warmth in its wake. A bit closed now and should reward a few years of cellaring. Decent. Reviewed June 8, 2010
