Wine of the Day April 13, 2015

image2013 Anthill Farms, Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast. The latest Anthill Farms Pinot, the Sonoma Coast is a beautiful and almost delicate with dreamy texture and light to medium in body, with alcohol at 13.4% and smooth layers of pure fruit. This is very elegant and classy juice, pretty and nicely vibrant, it shows bright cherry, raspberry, plum and strawberry fruits with spice, cinnamon, hints of stony/mineral, tea and saline notes. This is not overly complicated or complex, but so delicious and alluring you’ll fall easily for this beautiful and savvy Pinot Noir, a lot of credit to Anthill Farms for crafting such a lovely restrained wine. The Sonoma Coast is a lush and balanced effort with soft ripe tannins, lifting acidity making for a pleasing wine that just does everything right, these 2013 wines are very impressive and I highly recommend trying to find a few bottles, they usually are difficult to find, but worth the search and effort to find them. This seems to be drinking well young, but should gain over the next year or so in bottle, drink from 2015 to 2018. ($42 Est.) 92 Points, grapelive
