14.2% alc., pH 3.77, TA 0.536, 647 cases, $38. Vineyard is located in one of the cooler parts of the Anderson Valley and is a 30-year-old, dryfarmed site. Entirely composed of a heritage Beaujolais clone of Pinot Noir, a true rarity. Native yeast fermentation, aged 14 months in French oak barrels, 20% new. · Light reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of earthy cherry, rose petal, mushroom and sandalwood lead off. Elegant in demeanor, with a light to mid weight core of cherry and blueberry fruits accompanied by a thread of herbs. The tannins are noticeable yet genteel, the wine offers good harmony, and finishes with a high cherry note. Score: 90. Reviewed December 1, 2016 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2005 Harmonique Elegancé Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.6% alc., 215 cases, $49.50. Inaugural vintage for this bottling. Harvested at 24.3º Brix. Sourced in small part from the Day Ranch Vineyard but primarily the Conzelman (formerly Rose Family) Vineyard. The Old Block (24 years old) of the Conzelman Vineyard consists of 4 acres of cordon pruned Martini clone. Yields were less than 2 tons per acre. · Darkest in color of the three 2005 Pinot Noirs. Hi-tone aromas of plums, raisins, sage and a hint of oak. Rich and ripe flavored dark fruits with notes of raisin, anise and Snicker’s bar, supple tannins, a silky and smooth texture, and a bright finish flush with tangerine peel. The oak is nicely integrated and the brisk acidity makes you reach for another sip. Reviewed June 5, 2009 WINERY » ARTICLE »
