With this Pinot, Anthill Farms looks to create a food-friendly, nuanced wine that represents the unique character of the Anderson Valley. Bright and approachable with light herbacious notes and earthiness, this is a benchmark example of the balance that young California winemakers are striving for, and achieving. Somewhat remote from most of Northern California’s wine-growing districts, this valley shelters a surprisingly harmonious blend of the wild and the civilized: in one vista, one can see sheep ranches, redwood groves, apple orchards, and impenetrable oak scrub.
