Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The body of the wine is really special, with a silky, almost unctuous texture that drives this wine. Layers of ripe peach and ripe apricot with honeysuckle tones all combine brilliantly on the palate. Enjoy this beautiful wine in the short-term while the acidity remains the most bright.
Ratings
Our past 2019 vintage was awarded 90 points by Wine Enthusiast Magazine & 94 points by Wine Review Online.
Vineyard Notes
Originally planted in the 1970’s by Dr. Ferrington, with about 70 acres of rich valley floor planted to grapes, the Ferrington Vineyard grows five clones of Pinot Noir, comprising about 27 acres of his vineyard. Among the coolest growing region in the state.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes for this wine were grown in the Anderson Valley, Mendocino County. We pick after the grapes have developed a pink to reddish hue, and the aromas are effuse with rose petals, cinnamon spice and exotic lychee fruit. We handle the fruit very carefully, avoiding as much as possible some of the more bitter tannins found in the skins. It is cold fermented in stainless steel and bottled in the spring. Gewürztraminer is a grape I am familiar with, as it was one of the first white grapes I made into wine when I started in the wine business 38 years ago. It is delightful with strong cheeses, spicy Asian dishes and sauced white meats. - Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Food Pairing Notes
This wine's wonderful, spicy finish makes it a great match for Thai or Indian cuisine, spicy or well seasoned dishes or with aged and cured, smoked meats.
