2015 Nash Mill Pinot Noir
Our Nash Mill Vineyard takes its name from the history of logging at the site. Now that the mill is silent, the majestic redwoods have begun to regrow, fish are returning to the undammed creek, and four acres of vineyard (Pinot clones 667, 115 and Pommard 5) are coming of age on a gentle southern hidden hillside. From this special place comes this rare wine.
This small block of vines continuously produces low yielding concentrated grapes. Each clone was harvested at night and fermented individually in small open-top fermenters. The unique expressions of each clone and fermentation allowed for experimentation with blending to find the best representation of the vineyard. The end result is a very limited bottling of two barrels, a blend of clone 115 and Pommard in French oak.
Captivating from start to finish, the 2015 Nash Mill Pinot Noir is an Anderson Valley treasure. Continually evolving aromas and flavors of rose petal, raspberry, tea leaf, and vanilla work seamlessly with an extremely silky mouth-feel and the lightest touch of smooth tannin. This wine plays nicely with foods such as mushroom pate, creamy brie, or smoked trout. Cheers to this truly rare and unique wine!
