Situated in western Mendocino County, Anderson Valley's Ferrington Vineyard was first planted in the late 1960's and some of the original vines are still producing fruit. The inland climate is tempered by cool marine air, with steep hills and mountains that surround the rolling-to-nearly-level alluvial terraces of this extraordinary site. The vineyard has a gentle south-facing slope with soil that is mainly decomposed sandstone and clay soils, with 3-4 feet of topsoil. Ferrington Vineyard has become one of California's most sought-after pinot noir vineyards and this wine is a true testament to its exceptional offerings.

Wine AdvocateI'm impressed with the 2013 Pinot Noir Daniel Ferrington Vineyard from the Anderson Valley. The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts and seems like a naked, almost natural wine. Alcohols are very modest at 13.4%. The wine reveals plenty of raspberry and blueberry fruit, good texture, fresh acids and a delicate floral note. This is drinking well now, and should continue to evolve for another 4-5 years.
