2013 Pennyroyal Farm Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

13.6% alc., 678 cases, $39. · Dark reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of dark berry preserves, garrique and earthy flora lead off. Full-bodied in style, with rich flavors of purple and black fruits with touches of anise, spice and herbs. The tannic backbone is well matched to the sappy fruit and there is a pleasing infusion of black raspberry jam on the finish. My only nit is that the wine lacks a bit of vibrancy. Score: 89.
