Wine Advocate | Rating: 93The 2014 Pinot Noir Anden Seven Springs Vineyard comes from 50% phylloxera-affected vines planted in 1984 and using 100% whole cluster fruit matured in new oak. That new wood is barely discernable on the nose: very perfumed with dried rose petal and iris scents infusing the red berry fruit, the whole clusters lending freshness and tension. The palate is medium-bodied and here the hand of the new wood comes through and imprints the dark berry fruit laced with sea-salt and undergrowth. That will need a couple of years to be fully subsumed, but it feels very persistent with a long saline aftertaste that begs you to take another sip. Excellent.Author: Neal Martin
