2018 Domaine Anderson Estate Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

13.2% alc., $45. Sourced from three vineyard sites including Dach (64%), Walraven (29%) and Pinoli (7%). Aged 15 months in French oak barrels, 30% new. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. There is a subtle green tone in this wine that reflects under-ripeness. Aromas of strawberry, cherry, spice and red rose petal. Red-fruit driven on the palate in a mid-weight style with gracious tannins and a red-cherry themed finish. Rather pedestrian and lacking in mid-palate fortitude. Less enjoyable with more oak in the forefront when tasted the following day from a previously opened bottle. Score: 89. Reviewed November 14, 2021
