2017 Blue Farm Pinot Noir Anne Katherina Vineyard Farmhouse Block

Coming all from the Swan Clone of Pinot Noir and brought up in 75% new French oak, the 2017 Pinot Noir Anne Katherina Vineyard Farmhouse Block is a riper, sexier wine than the base vineyard release and has lots of mulled strawberry, pine forest, sappy spring flowers, and exotic spice-like aromas and flavors. These flow to a medium to full-bodied Pinot Noir with a seamless texture, ripe tannins, and nicely integrated acidity. It’s another classy Pinot Noir from this team that will have a decade of prime drinking.

2017 Blue Farm Pinot Noir Anne Katherina Vineyard

Not harvested until September 6 and brought up in 70% new French oak, the 2017 Pinot Noir Anne Katherina offers a very pretty, pure, focused, and medium-bodied style as well as notes of ripe black cherries, tart strawberries, spring flowers, and forest floor. Tight and vibrant on the palate, with a notable sense of freshness, it’s one of the more Burgundian style releases in the lineup. It blossoms beautifully with time in the glass and will continue drinking well for a decade.

2017 Blue Farm Pinot Noir King Ridge Vineyard

Coming from a site in the Fort Ross-Seaview region of the Sonoma Coast, the 2017 Pinot Noir King Ridge Vineyard is another Pommard clone release and was brought up in 70% new barrels. Deep ruby-hued with a great nose of spiced strawberries, raspberries, forest floor, and exotic flowers, it’s medium-bodied and ethereally textured, with sweet tannins and a great finish. It’s another classic, balanced Pinot Noir from this team well worth seeking out. It’s already drinking great yet will benefit from a year in bottle and should keep nicely through 2029.
