Jackson Estate Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2016
The wine shows its cool-climate origins in bright acidity, accenting the rich flavors of blueberries, black cherries, cola and dusty spices. Firm minerality grounds the wine. The tannins are powerful, yet with silkiness on the finish, while oak barrel aging brings a smoky, sandalwood note. Beautiful to drink now on release, this Pinot will age well over the next six-plus years easily.
