2017 Pinot Noir, Eye of the Needle Vineyard, Anderson Valley
Journeying into the Anderson Valley via Highway 253, you wind your way through its eastern gateway, the Eye of the Needle. At its end is Highway 128 and Pennyroyal Farm’s finest block of Clone 115 Pinot Noir grapes. This vintage has exceptional dark cherry and cardamom flavors with a pronounced floral nose. Its structured body is an ideal result of being aged 18 months in French oak barrels.
