Sean Thackrey 2016 Andromeda Pinot Noir

Devil's Gulch Ranch Marin County. A bit on the fuller side, but not quite as much heft to it versus 2015.  Up front aromas of plum with a hit of spice and a secondary earth note. The palate has nice spice with a bit of plum and some subdued cherry tones. D&M Tasting Notes

This is, as always, Pinot Noir from a vineyard above Nicasio in Marin County, thus the closest to Bolinas of all the vineyards Sean Thackrey harvests from, and one of the cooler and windier Pinot Noir growing sites in the world. This means the fruit is never baked, fatal to the quality of Pinot in warmer locations; but the vineyard being above the fog line, there's no lack of sun, thus no problem with ripeness. Furthermore, during flowering the wind produces millerandage, or "hens and chicks" in English, meaning in essence a terrible fruit set, with only a minority of fully formed berries in each cluster, the remainder being tiny "shot" berries, so named for their resemblance to buckshot. This means a naturally very high proportion of skins to juice, in turn meaning a Pinot Noir naturally intense in color and flavor. Wine Makers Notes
