2019 Kalinda Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1602069

This is one of those Kalinda bottlings that if we could tell you who made it...or put their name on the bottle...it would be gone in less than 24 hours. The 2019 Kalinda Anderson Valley Pinot Noir is sourced from some of the finest organic and biodynamic vineyards in the region and crafted by one of the country's true legends of Pinot Noir. This winery's releases are typically mailing list only, or found on top wine lists across the country. A more elegant style that combines Anderson Valley's classic mixture of forest berries with savory earthy tones and woodsy spices. (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L Domestic Wine Buyer)

I like a good mystery, so the source of this Pinot Noir has absorbed my brainpan for several days. There are several famed wineries in the Anderson Valley that produce a combination of such esteemed fruit and finesse, but for under $30? No way.... but yes, someone found a way, and you, dear customer, will reap the benefits. A wine to stock up on for sure, as it plays and cavorts on the palate with sumptuous flavors of pomegranate, black raspberry, blood orange, clove and potpourri. Generous and soulful, think of those lovely winding roads through the vine-laden valley that end up in front of a gate, but which one? Just drink the mystery....

The 2019 Kalinda Pinot Noir from Anderson Valley is quite possibly one of the freshest Pinots I have tasted in a while, and will be a perfect crusher, even for the warmer months to come. The palate offers bright red berries with well integrated earthiness and great acidity. The juice is so yummy, don't miss out on this bottling. Cheers!

This has to go down as one of the best Kalindas ever. And that's not something I say lightly...there have been some pretty epic wines bottled under our house brand over the years. Historical sources have included: Kosta Browne, Pahlmeyer, Turnbull, Silver Oak, Au Bon Climat, Lewis, Cakebread...the list goes is long. On most editions we're sworn to secrecy as is the case here. However, I can say that we have an ongoing agreement with one of the finest and most highly respected wineries on the Sonoma Coast / Anderson Valley that each year they will blend a wine for us from their own juice. This isn't a bulk wine situation...this is prime fruit from some of the very best and most notable organic and biodynamically farmed vineyards in the region. The wine is made in the same exacting methods as their own label in their own cellar. It's simply a composition of some declassified barrels that were surplus to requirement for their own MUCH more expensive wines. Each year we have the chance to sample different potential blends as barrel / tank samples and agree on the finished wine to be bottled under Kalinda. The 2019 Anderson Valley is stunning. A bright, semi-translucent color in the glass hints at the fresh, energetic style with rose petal aromatics, piquant forest berries, leaf litter, woodsy spices, bramble, and clove. Elegant on the palate with wonderful purity and silky texture. The focused acidity keeps flavors resonating on the palate and gives a very food friendly, salivating, umami filled finish. For a bright, elegant wine there's certainly no lack of layers and depth. This really speaks to Anderson Valley's ability to capture the dual personality of Pinot Noir - vibrant, high-toned, juicy fruit, but also savory, earthy, forest floor type complexity. It's a wonderful bottle that shares so much of the character of it's famous producer's wines. The staff here have fallen for this one big time...don't miss it!!!
Top Value! Drink from 2022 to 2032
