First in Pinot
Today’s Ancient Oak Cellars 2011 Pinot Noir Siebert Ranch Russian River Valley is, in a word, astoundinglyawesomeanddelicious! That word illustrates not only how crazy we are about today’s wine, but also how much winemaker Greg La Follette has packed into this wine.
Here is what Agent Red wrote about Greg:
“Before I tell you about the wine, let me tell you about winemaker Greg La Follette. I met Greg one day almost 8 years ago and I was lucky enough to spend three full hours with him, tasting barrel after barrel of a dizzying array of Pinot Noir still in barrel. We climbed ladders, broke glasses and traded stories of our lives along the way. I’ll be forever grateful for this experience. And for Greg’s vintage after vintage of fantastic Pinot Noir.”
… and the fantastic Pinot Noir that we are offering you today:
“Ancient Oak used the finest lots from its finest vineyard, the Siebert Ranch Vineyard, for this amazing Pinot Noir. Made from Pommard 4 Pinot Noir, this is an exquisite, fruit-driven Pinot that has plenty of complexity - without sacrificing easy drinkability. This is Russian River Valley and Greg La Follette at their very finest.”
We hope that you take some of this wine home with you, today. At 45% off, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better RRV Pinot Noir for the price.
Black tea, dried cherry, cherry cola, dried red rose petal, earth, soft spice and distant camp smoke.
Small cluster, small berry concentration with dried cranberry, black cherry juice, earthy bramble, violet and a touch of spice.
Exceptionally long and full of flavor throughout.
A Pinot with this much backbone deserves something fancy yet simple: a wild mushroom risotto. For you meat lovers, we recommend roast duck breast, prepared with cherries and figs.
