2012 Witching Stick Dowser’s Cuvée Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
14.0% alc., 426 cases, $55. A blend of 4 vineyards and several clones from both Anderson Valley and Mendocino Ridge (Akin, Wiley, Cerise and Gianoli vineyards). 77% of fruit from the cooler “deep end” of the valley. Aged 19 months in 27% new French oak. · Medium reddish purple color in the glass. Bright nose with hi-tone scents of dark cherry, dark raspberry, cardamom spice, and oak vanillin. Plenty of ripe cherry and pomegranate fruits and a hint of citrus fill the mouth with layers of pleasure. The wine is still young with some unintegrated tannins, but the potential is evident. Score: 90. Reviewed July 28, 2014 ARTICLE »
