What To Drink Now: Donum Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

Modeling Grand Cru Burgundian farming techniques, from vines grown in rugged, rustic Anderson Valley, Donum Anderson Valley Pinot Noir ($80) feels the cooling maritime influence of the Pacific Ocean throughout the evening. This influence captures the freshness needed to keep ripe fruit fresh, giving the wine a vibrancy, with opulent silkiness, melding layers of black and red berry, black plum, woody herb, spiced cedar, and wild rose. Delicious upon release, but a little time in the bottle adds an additional layer of concentration to the full-bodied wine, allowing the full potential of the fruit to shine.
