2017 Pinot Noir, Big Hendy Reserve, Anderson Valley
Inspired by Anderson Valley’s majestic redwood grove and state park, Hendy Woods, our Big Hendy Reserve is a careful selection of our vineyards’ lots blended and then preserved through extended aging—a total of one-and-half years in barrel! The resulting wine is a lush Pinot Noir reminiscent of summer’s wild berries with a lasting mixed forest fragrance of toasted oak, peppery laurel, and a hint of redwood duff. Sipping it reminds us of wooded walks with family and friends and the importance that this grove’s continued preservation will be enjoyed by generations.
