WOODRUFF FAMILY VINEYARD PINOT NOIR

(Also known as Ferrari Family Vineyard)

2016


“The 2016 Pinot Noir Ferrari Family Vineyard is pretty, but also a touch compact at this stage. My impression is that the 2016 still needs to fully assimilate the 100% whole clusters. The tannins are a bit aggressive, while the fruit is not particularly expressive. Ferrari is the vineyard previously known as Woodruff.”

“Wild sagebrush, thyme and fennel pollen spice up the tart cherry aromas on the nose of this bottling from 34-year-old vines, which also throws up gingerbread scents as it opens. Framed by solid tannins and well-primed acidity, the palate’s tart red fruit is lifted by fennel and wild herbs. ”

“In the hills just north of Corralitos, this dry-farmed vineyard was planted 35 years ago, providing a quiet, gently rounded 2015 with smoky red-fruit tones that last on sappy richness. It’s mostly about textural elegance, the gracious touch of the tannins, warm notes of alcohol softening the cool fruit. Not yet complex, it should develop more detail as it ages.”
