Tasting notes: Pale to medium ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir Ferrington Vineyards was aged 15 months in 25% new oak. The nose features red licorice, cardamom, tree bark and bitters over a core of red and black cherries and raspberries. The medium-bodied palate is bright and spicy with ripe red fruits, a grainy frame and great freshness on the long finish. Lovely!
Producer: In 1965, Jack and Jamie Davies began reviving the historic Schramsberg winery property in Napa Valley. They challenged conventional ideas and relied on innovation to craft the first world-class, American, méthode traditionelle sparkling wines produced from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. In the 1990s, a second generation of the Davies family undertook replanting the estate on Diamond Mountain to red Bordeaux varieties, and J. Davies Estate Cabernet Sauvignon was launched with the 2001 vintage. In 2014, the family released the compelling and balanced 2012 Davies Vineyards single-vineyard Pinot Noirs, a logical evolution based on over 40 years’ experience with cool-climate Pinot Noir sites and grapes in the North Coast.
Vineyard and Winemaking: The 2017 Davies Vineyard Ferrington Pinot Noir Anderson Valley hails from the prestigious Mendocino appellation within the North Coast region of California, USA. The Ferrington Vineyards, where the grapes are cultivated, bask in a microclimate that imparts unique characteristics to the wine. The cool coastal breezes and well-drained soils contribute to the refined elegance and balanced acidity found in this exceptional vintage. With only 325 cases produced, this is a rare gem that wine enthusiasts will undoubtedly cherish. The 2017 Davies Vineyard Ferrington Pinot Noir Anderson Valley is a testament to the artistry and dedication of the Davies Vineyard, delivering a truly remarkable wine that captures the essence of the Anderson Valley.
