Donum Anderson Valley Estate Grown Pinot Noir 2016
Aromas of redwood, pine and lavender immediately give this wine away as Anderson Valley, with cranberry, raspberry, plum and cherry joining in to round out the nose. The palate begins with incredibly intense and focused red-fruit flavors, hemmed in by fine-grained tannin and a surprising freshness that carries through to the finish, where baking spice and a core of mouth-watering red fruit lingers for several minutes.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a delicious, rich and exotic wine that shows an earthy slant to its generous, complex fruit flavors. Black cherry, raspberry and fig aromas grace the nose, while just-ripe notes of red cherry and rhubarb touch the palate. It is full bodied, smooth and mouthfilling, but counterpointed nicely by moderate tannins and acidity.
Wine AdvocateSourced entirely from the Angel Camp vineyard and aged in 80% new French oak, the medium ruby-purple colored 2016 Pinot Noir Anderson Valley reveals redcurrants, raspberries and wild strawberries with wafts of fallen leaves and tilled soil. The palate is medium-bodied with a good amount of red cherry layers and a chewy texture, finishing with lovely vibrancy. 590 cases produced.
