2017 Pinot Noir
Anderson Valley, CA
Drew Family Wines
What we love
Jason Drew makes a range of Pinots, but the Fog-Eater is his calling card, a plummy, tension-filled snapshot of the appellation from a blend of sites in Anderson Valley’s north end. Bright, floral and beautifully lifted, it is all class. The delicate and perfumed nose keeps you bending in, and on the palate expect to find nuances that cover the red fruit flavor spectrum – tart strawberries, rhubarb, cranberry, black cherries – with a touch of tea, mint, and earthy tones. This one is not to be missed as it is gorgeous!
