Given the notes and age 10 in a ripe vintage decided time to pop this one. PnP. Medium light red with clearing at the edge. Reticent light airy nose with various herbs and a hint of orange peel. On the palate medium weight and excellent balance with a long finish which just keeps echoing. This is more mineral and less red fruits than is typical for Anderson Valley - quite complex with nice secondary flavors. Nice surprise.
Once again Ted nails a Burgundy styled wine from California. Wonderful earthy tones without the overt fruit found in most California Pinot. Drinking wonderfully now and I don't think it needs to or could gain any more from age.
