• Black Kite 2014 Redwood's Edge Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

This wine is the most high toned of the various blocks on the Black Kite estate. The nose shows light bacon fat, dried herbs, bramble blackberry, and sweet cherry, roses, and forest floor. The palate has an initial hit of cola, sweet cherry, oak and a touch of raspberry and forest floor. Delicious and complex. D&M Tasting Notes

Kite’s Rest Vineyard is situated on a 40 acre parcel in Anderson Valley’s western end, called the “Deep End”. It is about 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Here our Pinot Noir vines start from the Navarro River and rise up 400 feet to meet the towering coast redwoods. These are the tallest trees on earth at more than 320 feet, can live for 2,000 years and are found only in this unique coastal environment. The coast redwoods like the region’s cool climate just as much as the Pinot Noir grape. The cool climate is enhanced for our grapes by our vineyard’s north-facing exposure, providing us with even greater hang time that is normal in Anderson Valley. As a result, our Pinot Noir grapes ripen slowly and evenly, yielding generous and complex fruit flavors as well as acid balance. Winery Notes
