Arista Ferrington Pinot Noir 2014


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

The 2014 Ferrington Vineyard Pinot Noir is dark and intense, both visually and on the palate. A nose of brambly wild berry, forest floor, cola, pencil shavings and blackberry preserves is complemented by flavors of cranberry, black plum, pomegranate and espresso. The mid-palate is silky and rich, leading into a long, layered finish. With time in the glass, secondary aromas of ground cinnamon, cedar and griotte cherry begin to emerge. Pleasantly chewy tannins and tangy acidity provide the structure for this Pinot Noir from one of the most historic vineyards in the famously cool Anderson Valley. Peak drinking window: 2016 through 2026.

Wine SpectatorThough marked by dusty, savory herb and cedar notes, the intense fruit core rises to the occasion, fanning out and extending to gravelly earth and snappy berry flavors. The finish brings the elements together in a tightly focused presentation. Drink now. 258 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastLively, focused and fruity, this medium-bodied wine gushes with ripe berry and cherry aromas followed by ripe but also tangy fruit flavors and a good touch of palate-cleansing tannins. The vibrancy and great balance will help it pair nicely with a wide range of foods.
