2018 Anthill Farms "Comptche Ridge Vineyard" Mendocino County Pinot Noir

SKU #1521202 94-96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Another stellar wine in this range, the 2018 Pinot Noir Comptche Ridge is fabulous. In this vintage, the Comptche Ridge is a bit richer and deeper than it has been, while avoiding some of the austerity this wine can show. Beguiling in its aromatics and finely sculpted, the 2018 is marvelously complex. There is plenty of tannin, and the acids are bright (as they are for all these wines), but the 2018 is deep and so multi-faceted. It will appeal most to readers who enjoy taut, structured reds. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium ruby-purple, the 2018 Pinot Noir Comptche Ridge opens with leather, bay leaves, fir, turned earth and garrigue with a core of fresh black fruits. The medium-bodied palate is concentrated with its earthy character accented by floral notes. It's refreshed by juicy acidity and finishes long and nuanced. (EB) Inner quote mark (8/2020)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Very ripe and earthy, this big but relaxed wine overflows with black-cherry and cooked cherry flavors that are accented by rhubarb and tobacco nuances. Moderate tannins give the palate some heft. It's a fun trip down the path less traveled. (JG) Inner quote mark (12/2020)
