2017 Waits-Mast "Wentzel Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1563956 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Hints of earth, leather and black tea weave through this delicate, almost soft-textured wine, giving it delicious complexity that builds with each sip and lingers on the finish. It was aged for 16 months in 23% new French barrels for just a touch of oak spice. Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

One of my favorite vineyards in Anderson Valley, Wentzel always seems to deliver the goods. Waits-Mast have coaxed a particularly detailed rendition into bottle this year, don't miss it! (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L Domestic Wine Buyer) Winemaker's Notes: "At a roughly 900 foot elevation near Philo, Roland and Barbara Wentzel’s10-acre vineyard is organically farmed within a expansive 300+ acre forested property. The Wentzels live mostly off the land with lush vegetable and herb gardens, fruit trees, sheep, ducks, chickens and more. It is an idyllic, welcoming haven tucked away in the hillsides of Anderson Valley and Roland and Barbara are passionate caretakers of the land. The particular plot of land that we get our fruit from is called "The Clos" as it is a fenced-in block situated up the hill. It’s a tiny block - less than an acre - that consists of vines transplanted three years ago from a lower block that had poorly drained soil that promoted excessive vine vigor. The block has a south-west orientation, terraced up a steep hillside, so the grapes benefit from the long afternoon sunlight.The clos at Wentzel Vineyard has Dijon clones 114, 115, 667 and 777 - all within a block that is less than an acre."
