$50.00 per Bottle

The Fog-Eater is our Anderson Valley Appellation Pinot Noir combining two sites from the north western side of Anderson Valley. These two dynamic hillside vineyards with ocean floor based weathered sandstone and shale based soils are subject to daily winds and overnight fog, keeping temperatures moderated during the growing season. Our aim with this wine has always been to layer and elevate complexity and showcase this unique coastal valley. The nose is generous and pleasing with dark savory red fruit, coastal umami, black truffle and petrichor. The palate leads with dark red plums, trumpet mushrooms and fir tips. The acidity preserves the tautness and ensures a long persistent finish from the front to the back of the palate. A gorgeous vintage of this special cuvee. Pair with a Classic Cassoulet or Roasted Game Hen.
"The 2022 Pinot Noir Fog-Eater is a very pretty delicate wine. Crushed flowers, red berry fruit, white pepper, spice, cedar and a kick of orange zest give this mid weight seductive Pinot tons of charm. " Antonio Galloni
