vineyard info:

Located a few miles from the Pacific Ocean, this vineyard sits near the tiny town of Annapolis, and is farmed by Steve Campbell. At approximately 750 feet above sea level, it sits right at the boundary of the marine layer, ensuring that the cool, coastal climate delays ripening well beyond the warmer vineyards to the east. The two-decade-old vines grow on sandy, low-vigor Goldridge soil, which helps reduce yields to near two tons per acre.

96 Pts A. Galloni (Vinous): " of the most complete, arrestingly beautiful wines I have ever tasted from Anthill Farms. Dark, rich and unctuous ... possesses notable depth and yet it remains translucent, nuanced and super-expressive. The 50% whole clusters are not especially evident. Lavender, mint and blue/purplish fruit infuse this exquisitely layered, inviting Pinot."

95 Pts R. Parker: "... scents of cranberry and blueberry and nuances of forest floor and dried lavender. Medium-bodied with polished tannins and energetic acidity, the palate boasts powerful, concentrated fruit and a very long, latent finish. It deserves a few years in bottle to unfold."
