2010 Panthea Londer Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., pH 3.70, TA 0.54, 200 cases, $38. Vineyard located in the “deep end” of the Anderson Valley. A blend of Pommard, Swan, Dijon 777 and 115, and A2 clones. 100% de-stemmed, whole berry fermented using wild and Burgundian yeasts after a multi-day cold soak. Aged for up to 22 months in 100% French oak barrels, 40% new. · Moderately light cherry red color in the glass. Nicely perfumed with scents of cherry, wilted rose, bark and cigar box. Light to mid weight flavors of cherry, plum and spice aim to please in a gracious, demurely styled wine, with lacy tannins and some length on the crunchy fruit finish. This wine is improving over time and has the balance to last several more years. Score: 89. Reviewed September 18, 2015
