2013 Annahala Ranch Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley


Cakebread Pinot Noir Annahalla Ranch, Anderson Valley

About This Wine

The 2013 Annahala Pinot Noir displays classic varietal aromas of bright black cherry and raspberry fruit complemented by a piquant spice-box scent. Its vibrantly delicious black cherry and raspberry flavors are supported by fine tannins and bright acidity, with mineral and spice tones enlivening the long finish. This varietally expressive, fruit-forward pinot noir is delightful now, on its own or with food (salmon, herb-roasted chicken, ham and lamb dishes), but it will develop greater nuance with another 2-3 years of bottle age. From our 60‐acre Annahala Ranch in southern Anderson Valley, a region celebrated for its world‐class pinot noirs.

Summer weather was ideal, with moderately warm days and cool nights fostering steady, even ripening
