Jackson Estate

Anderson Valley

Pinot Noir

2014

Our Anderson Valley Pinot Noir shows its cool-climate origins in bright acidity, accenting the rich flavors of blueberries, black cherries, and cola. Established in 1983, the Anderson Valley AVA is in a narrow valley carved out by years of erosion from the Navarro River. As the river runs through the valley and empties into the ocean, it cuts through the mountains to allow the cold ocean wind and coastal fog to creep in.

New vintage coming in 2017.

"The 2014 Pinot Noir Jackson Estate Anderson Valley is another tasty wine in this range. Sweet red cherry and plum are center stage. Delicate, mid-weight and gracious, but with lovely palate presence, the 2014 is a terrific wine to enjoy over the near term."
