2016 Anthill Farms Pinot Noir, Comptche Ridge Vineyard, Mendocino

2016 Anthill Farms Pinot Noir, Comptche Ridge Vineyard, Mendocino

$52.95

Description

This remote vineyard is located in a small natural clearing above the town of Comptche, just inland from the northern Mendocino County coast.  Owned and managed by the Weir family, Comptche Ridge is dry-farmed on a complex mix of fine sandy-clayey Franciscan soils, and is ringed completely by high redwoods and Douglas fire.  This vineyard is planted primarily to the Swan clone.

Proprietor Anthony Filiberti typically uses 40-50% stems and prefers low amounts of new oak. These are some of the most transparent, graceful Pinots being made in California today.  This was our favorite at a recent tasting at the Waterboy in downtown Sacramento;  other excellent Anthill Farms’ Pinot Noir from 2016 include Campbell Ranch (Sonoma Coast), Abbey Harris (Anderson Valley), Tina Marie (Green Valley – RRV), and Peters (Sebastopol-Sonoma Coast).
