Drew Family Pinot Noir Fog Eater 2019 - SOLD OUT

The Fog-Eater is our appellation blend Pinot Noir where we select several Anderson Valley sites and bring them together to express the unique cool climate characteristics of Anderson Valley. Our aim has always been to layer and elevate complexity and showcase this very special northern coastal valley. The 2019 vintage is showing incredible transparency with an ethereal quality from the front to the back of the palate. We combined four deep end vineyards in this 2019 bottling. With a focus on the Deep End of Anderson Valley, the true cooler end of the valley, the red fruit character leans into the cranberry and pomegranate with sage and red rose petals and distinctive forest mushroom character. All with bright acidity that keeps your mouth watering and wanting more. We are quite smitten with this 2019 vintage. Pair with roasted game hen and herbed mashed potatoes or grilled salmon with roasted butternut squash.

WE96: Rose petal and mint accents merge with deep, concentrated black-fruit flavors in this medium- to full-bodied wine that is laced with velvety, fine-grained tannins. It combines superb balance with layers of fruit and subtle spices for a very compelling palate. *Cellar Selection*
