    Winemaker's Notes:

    Bright aromas of fresh blueberry, cranberry and rose petal underscored by subtle nuances of anise, toffee, white truffle and wet sand. Flavors of juicy huckleberry, hibiscus and tobacco emerge on the palate. Lively acidity, granite-like minerality and solid tannic backbone all a testament to high-altitude winegrowing.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is the second vintage of the Jackson family's Angerson Valley pinot noir project, from a high-elevation property that Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke purchased in 1999 and began planting in 2006. The vineyard sits above the town of Booneville at elevations approaching 2,000 feet, benefiting from plenty of sunlight as well as cooling ocean breezes coming over the hills to the west. The vineyard's sandstone-based soils grew a concentrated, mineral pinot noir in 2011, a wine that feels both ample and focused, glowing with rich dark cherry tones and loaded with earth scents of cedar bark and forest mushrooms, layered and complex. It's beautiful now, and its structure has room to grow with time in the cellar.

    Bright ruby-red. A smoky, highly perfumed bouquet evokes black raspberry, cherry-cola, dried rose and anise, with a spicy topnote. Weighty dark berry avors become livelier with air and pick up an element of minerality. Finishes tangy and quite long, with lingering smoke and vanilla avors and gentle tannins.

    International Wine Cellar

    A deeply scented, perfumed wine, the 2011 Pinot Noir impresses for its nuanced personality and sheer detail. Dark cherry notes lead to plums, cloves, menthol and crushed rocks. The 2011 is all about delineation, nuance and freshness, all qualities that are very much present in the glass
