Pacific Pinot Noir

The Anthill team makes several single-vineyard wines from sites in the coastal Sebastopol Hills and in Annapolis, on Sonoma’s far north coast. This bottling is a blend of fruit from those sites, and while it may be less distinctive than the solo bottlings, it doesn’t feel like a lesser selection. The brightness of the wine evokes the Pacific wind, kicking the fruit’s sunny glow into high-toned strawberry, mint and Bing cherry flavors while the tannins act like crystals refracting the bright fruit.
