2018 Drew Morning Dew Ranch Pinot Noir Anderson Valley
Winemaker Notes: A library release. The Morning Dew Ranch sits in the deep end of Anderson Valley, located on a south west facing hillside at approximately 600 - 800 feet in elevation. Planted by Burt Williams the eponymous founder of Williams Seylem, to several California heritage and suitcase selections. We source both a Rochioli and a 828- La Tache selection from two separate blocks on this hillside, deep end vineyard. The 2018 vintage was a cooler vintage which translated to longer hang time, pushing the pick date two weeks later. This classic Anderson Valley bottling delivers an elegant, finely tuned, ethereal and seamless wine with notes of pomegranate, shitake mushrooms, sage and dried red rose petals with distinct quartz mineral leanings. Using 40% whole clusters and fermented with native yeasts, Jason crafted another beautiful vintage from this pedigreed Anderson Valley site.
Wine Enthusiast - " This elegant, almost delicate wine has very good depth and concentration without being obvious about it. Fascinating scents of sour cherry, black tea and pomegranate are followed by vivid red- and black-cherry flavors backed by racy acidity and light tannins. The grapes come from the vineyard planted by Burt Williams of Williams & Selyem and now owned by Castello di Amorosa"
