Philo Ridge Vineyards Anderson Valley Pinot Noir, 2010

Philo Ridge is a small production, solar powered winery run by Fred Buonanno and Heather McKelvy, who moved from high tech jobs to build their dream winery in 1999. This Pinot Noir is produced from two vineyards on the Mendocino Ridge, Anderson Valley, California.

Medium ruby with garnet forming. Looks a bit more mature than I remember from the last bottle I had two years ago, but the bouquet and flavors are still young and fresh. Red cherries, cranberries, forest floor with a hint of black pepper. Flavors are delicate but bold and well defined. The depth and complexity I have come to expect from an Anderson Valley Pinot Noir.
