Sweet cherry and raspberry fruit. This lacks the cola and sur maturite that many Cali PN seem to possess. Everytime I open an Anthill wine I'm pleasantly surprised by its balance between California fruit and Old World reserve and sophistication and ask why I don't buy more... Excellent stuff!
Bottle #1 of 4. Loved it! Very bright, light as a feather and full of energy. VERY light translucent cranberry red color with only a hint of rim lightening. Etheric nose of brightest of red fruits, nice glycerin, superb lift and cut. Had this side by side with an 09 Rhys Santa Cruz Mountains, and I preferred this for the first two nights. (Later the Rhys, with its depth and dry extract, surpassed it.) Wonderful pinot, wish I had lots more. This is just starting its run, and will be good for 6-9 years, at least. But it sure is blazing now! Superb winemaking.
