In 1971, when Husch planted the first Pinot vines in the Anderson Valley, many naysayers
thought red grapes were a losing proposition for the region. History has since proven that the
warm days and cool, foggy nights are near perfect for ripening world-class Pinot Noir. Our
Anderson Valley bottling is a complex blend of fruit from throughout the valley—from the
warmer Boonville area all the way through to the northern, cooler ‘deep end’ vineyards.

In 2019, we enjoyed a long and slow growing season in the Anderson Valley. Each vineyard lot
was hand-picked, fermented separately in small open-top fermenters, and punched down by
hand 2 - 3 times per day. About 10% of the fruit in this blend was left attached to the stems
during fermentation, a traditional process called “whole cluster fermentation.” We find this
approach adds complexity and character to the finished wine. The lots were gently pressed, aged
nine months in French oak barrels, and thoughtfully blended for balance and purity of flavors.

Tasting Notes
Lush and inviting, our 2019 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir showcases this valley’s great fruit.
Living up to its striking ruby color, the wine presents vivid aromas of ripe cherry, red berries,
hibiscus flowers, and baking spices. Subtle notes of rhubarb, earth, and graham cracker crumbs
add depth and complexity. The wine delivers excellent balance, purity of fruit, and sustained
richness with a silky-smooth texture. This dinner table classic pairs exceptionally with coq au
vin, turkey or duck entrées, roasted pecans and walnuts, or creamy cheeses.
