Notes from the Winemaker:
Ferrington is perhaps our most consistent vineyard in its aromatic character from vintage to vintage. The 2013 is loaded with intense aromatics of pie cherry, raspberry, and a hint of cola. Rich flavors of strawberry, rhubarb, and hints of nutmeg are reminiscent of a great slice of pie. Yet bright acidity and supple tannins keep this delicious wine fresh and never cloying. While this beautiful wine is drinking splendidly now, patience will be rewarded as it ages gracefully for a decade or more.

Winemaking:
The fruit was harvested September 6 through 13 at an average of 24.3° Brix. It then went through a seven day cold soak at 50°F, a nine day uninoculated primary fermentation peaking between 90 and 94°F, and a seven to fourteen day extended maceration. The wine was aged f if teen months in 60 gallon French oak barrels, 57% of which were new. Coopers include Cadus, Damy, Rousseau, François Frères and Sirugue.

Vineyard Notes:
The vaunted Ferrington Vineyard is located just outside the town of Boonville, an area of Anderson Valley that is more protected from the maritime breeze, giving the wine from Ferrington a classically fruit driven and opulent Pinot Noir character. This wine is made of a blend of Wädenswil and the Dijon clones 115 and 777.



93 Points & "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Packed with fruit and tannins in almost equal measure, this robust but not heavy wine has a layered texture, bright flavors and a sense of depth and structure that indicate it will improve with time. It offers plenty of red cherry and raspberry flavors, and flashes of smoky oak that are well interlaced. Best after 2019." - Jim Gordon (4/1/2016)
