WINE REVIEW: Domaine Anderson, 2017 Pinot Noir, Estate Bottled, Anderson Valley, CA ($40)



by Andrew Chalk


The Anderson Valley area of Mendocino County is a gem, and one that is relatively unknown. Domaine Anderson found out early and was so committed that they put the name of the AVA in the name of their wine.


This pinot noir shows voluptuous red fruit of strawberry and racy, defined tannin of a cooler climate. There is a base of forest floor on the palate and a nose of herbs and fruit.


The palate is distinct from Sonoma and Central Coast pinot noir in not being as ripe and fruity, but that is a welcome stylistic alternative.


This wine is recommended not just because it is an enjoyable wine, but because it breaks the mould.


Sample.
