Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Brilliant light peach color, with rose petal, jasmine, honeysuckle, cherry, elderflower, and orange blossom aromas. The wine offers a soft entry and creamy mouthfeel enveloping the crisp citrus and stone fruit flavors, with balanced acidity that builds on the lingering finish.
Ratings
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast: “Plenty of fruit flavors and good crisp acidity make this light-bodied wine delicious and palate-cleansing. Cantaloupe and watermelon are prominent and the tangy texture is tempting.” - Jim Gordon | 90 Points - Vinous: “Bright onion skin color. Spice-accented citrus and pit fruit aromas are complemented by building vanilla and floral nuances. Round and fleshy in texture, offering juicy nectarine, raspberry and honey flavors that firm up slowly on the back half. Finishes long and spicy, with a repeating pit fruit note and a touch of chamomile." - Josh Raynolds
Vineyard Notes
Straddling a naturally sculpted ridgetop above the fog line, just ten miles from the Pacific Ocean, Wiley Vineyard is situated in the famed “Deep End”—the relatively cool, westernmost portion of Anderson Valley. Resting at an elevation of 525 feet, this historic vineyard has a gentle slope, a Southeastern aspect and shallow Franciscan soil. Our Pinot Noir is blended from 20 acres of vines planted to clones 37, 115, 538, 667, 777 and Pommard, planted in 1982. This complexity in the vineyard contributes to the finished wine’s intriguing spice notes and character. Encircled by ridges sprinkled with conifers, this former homestead exemplifies the sublime beauty of Anderson Valley.
Production Notes
Favorable conditions at the start of the growing season - specifically bud break and flowering - in Anderson Valley were followed by uneventful weather throughout the year, save a small dose of late rain in May. Steady, even ripening allowed harvest to occur at precisely the right time, without any heat spikes. I am fortunate to be growing grapes in such close proximity to the Pacific Ocean and its moderating influence. Grape yields were above average and quality was exceptional in this temperate vintage.
Winemaker Notes
Pinot Noir grapes were gently pressed and wild fermented in a combination of neutral French and Hungarian oak barrels. A small amount of juice was also bled off the fermenters. The blend was assembled in December. The wine completed only a partial malolactic conversion.
