Grapelive: Wine of the Day February 21, 2017

2014 Drew Family Cellars, Pinot Noir, The Fog-Eater, Anderson Valley.
Another magical Pinot, from Drew in the 2014 vintage, The Fog-Eater Anderson Valley shows a vivacious character and deep fruit intensity making it almost irresistible and highly entertaining from start to finish. This set of 2014 wines from Drew are nothing short of gorgeous and this 2014 Drew The Fog-Eater defines California terroir and beauty with seductive charms, it starts with lively brightness and subtle perfume with vivid cherry, plum and wild raspberry fruits to lead off along with chalky stones, light mineral tones, tangy blueberry and stylish rose petal and minty herb. The flow is seamless on the palate and silken in mouth feel finishing with hints of mixed baking spices, fig and lingering grapey extract, that highlights it’s youthfulness. This pure Anderson Valley Pinot delivers in every way it’s potential and promise, do not miss this vintage of Drew wines these are sublime examples and some of the best wines of the vintage! While I loved the Gatekeeper, I might just like The Fog-Eater more on the second tasting, they both rock, and don’t forget about the Morning Dew Ranch bottling either, bravo Jason and Molly Drew on crafting such an exciting set of wines, drink these Drew 2014 Pinots from 2017 to 2026.
