Our 2015 Annahala Pinot Noir offers fragrant ripe black cherry and red raspberry aromas with pleasing hints of dried rose petal and tea-leaf spice. Rich and mouth-filling on the palate, with characteristic supple tannins, its deep core of wild cherry, raspberry, plum and pomegranate flavors lead to a long, fruit-filled finish graced by vibrant cherry and berry tones, a touch of zesty spice and a vein of refreshing minerality. Appreciably bigger and richer than previous vintages of Annahala, the 2015 vintage, while delicious now, will further reveal its charms with another 3-5 years’ bottle age. From our 60‐acre Annahala Ranch in southern Anderson Valley, a region celebrated for its world‐class pinot noirs.
About This Wine
In 2015, we fermented 14% of the juice with stems – a traditional Burgundian practice – which enhanced the wine’s structure and added a pleasing spice tone.
