2012 Apple Barn Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley


Cakebread Apple Barn Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley

About This Wine

Our 2012 Apple Barn Pinot Noir displays characteristic high-toned dark cherry, blueberry, black raspberry and plum aromas with hints of earth and spice. Rich and mouthfilling on the palate, its concentrated black cherry, huckleberry and black plum flavors gain a zesty spice tone on the long, savory finish. Finely structured by round, supple tannins and balanced acidity, this opulent Pinot Noir is delightful to drink now with herb-roasted chicken, pork, lamb and beef dishes, but it will develop even greater complexity with another 3-5 years of bottle age

Planted in 2001, our Apple Barn Vineyard is located just north of the town of Boonville in the southern end of Mendocino County’s Anderson Valley, a small coastal appellation renowned for its world-class pinot noirs.
