2017 Pinot Noir Wendling

2017 Pinot Noir Wendling

Fresh red cherries, violets, and spice aromatics abound, accompanied by rich earth and soil notes. On the palate tannins are consistent and elegant, leading to a persistent finish. This Pinot is a true, distinctive and age-worthy expression of the complexity of the Anderson Valley.
