Wine Spectator 93Pts 2007 Barnett Pinot Noir Viento Valle Anderson Valley

- Small production, single vineyard Pinot Noir
- Similar quantity produced to a Grand Cru Burgundy
- WS 93 points
- Among Wine Spectator's highest rated 07 Pinot Noirs

"Why have so many elite Napa and Sonoma Pinot Noir producers-Williams Selyem, Copain and Adrian Fog, to name just a few-begun buying grapes from the vineyards of Mendocino, California's obscure Anderson Valley? In fact, interest from outsiders has inspired growers to plant Pinot at a furious rate. In just the past 10 years, Anderson Valley Pinot Noir acreage has more than tripled: from 350 acres to about 1,200....the Anderson Valley may be one of the best places in California to grow Pinot Noir. " -- Food & Wine Magazine

As rare as a Grand Cru Burgundy!


Wine Spectator 93 points

Rich and full-bodied, with complex, concentrated wild berry and blackberry fruit that's focused, with hints of sage and espresso, ending with ripe, integrated tannins and a long finish. Drink now through 2014. 479 cases made.
