2017 PINOT NOIR, Anderson Valley

2017 PINOT NOIR, Anderson Valley

This Castello estate vineyard is located just south of the town of Boonville in Anderson Valley, a cool climate region famed for Burgundian and Alsatian varieties. With soft aromas of blackberry and black cherry, this lovely Pinot Noir exhibits hints of clove and spice, leading to elegant notes of dark fruit, black tea and forest floor.

91 Points by International Wine Review, "The 2017 Castello di Amorosa displays a dark ruby color and offers aromas of ripe blackberry and black cherry fruit. On the palate it reveals a soft round mouth feel resulting from 11 months of sur lie barrel aging in French oak. The wine has medium acidity and sweet oak nuances on a long finish. Sourced from Castello di Amorosa’s 34 acre estate vineyard south of Boonsville planted in the 1990s."

Winemaker Notes
Winter provided a record-breaking rainfall - a welcome end to the 4-years of drought. Bloom and fruit set in May occurred under ideal conditions. Summer was warm but the vines weathered the heat well and maturity moved along at a steady pace. The 2017 wine quality shows a lot of bright acidity and fresh varietal aromas in the white wines, and deep color, sweet fruit flavors. Looking like it will be another classic year! - Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Food Pairing Notes
Pinot Noir is the ideal pairing with salmon. The light red fruits and earthy, savory nature of a Pinot are a perfect match to the rich and savory meat of the salmon. Since salmon is an oily fish, a Pinot with a medium acidity helps to cut through and balance the dish's oiliness. Mushroom risotto is also a perfect pairing for Pinot Noir made in this style.
