Ferrington Vineyards Pinot Noir

The Vineyards
The Ferrington Vineyards property, located approximately 100 miles north of San Francisco and 17 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, is in a fertile pocket of land found at the edge of the foothills in Mendocino County’s Anderson Valley AVA. Between 360 and 440 feet above sea level, the three acres of vines utilize over six feet of Boontling and Pinole loam soil, sustainable farming practices, and deficit irrigation to produce three tons per acre of bright, complex fruit with wonderful balance. Cool, foggy nights and steadily warming days provide a long, even growing season which delivers mature fruit depth with a vibrant, acidic backbone.

The Wine
“Aromas of dense black cherry blended with crushed herbs, graham cracker, and vanilla gently arise from the glass. The layered palate coats with cranberry; intermingles with Santa Rosa plum, mocha, and sage; and is sustained by a firm finish.”

– Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies

Pinot Noir, Ferrington Vineyards, Anderson Valley 2012

Intense, with a rustic edge to the dusty cedar, raspberry and wild berry notes, accented by a dash of pennyroyal. Flexes some tannic muscle on the finish, but the fruit holds up well. Drink now through 2023.

Pinot Noir, Ferrington Vineyards, Anderson Valley 2012

Medium-light ruby; pleasant, initially restrained, raspberry and cherry fruit aroma with hints of baking spice, vanilla, and forest floor; medium to mediumfull body; supple, plummy, cherry fruit flavors with good acid balance, well integrated oak, and a slight creaminess in the mouthfeel; medium tannin; lingering aftertaste. Continued to develop with airing in the glass; Very highly recommended.

Pinot Noir, Ferrington Vineyards, Anderson Valley 2010

Nice framed black cherry fruit with hints of a tilt towards extra bits of concentration features prominently in this wine’s attractive aromas. Full on the palate and well-balanced with early supple impressions and a firm underbelly to the suggestions of velvet, this one is precise and convincing, and its finishing coarse edge is nothing more a judicious stay in the cellar of some three to five years will resolve. These Pinots are a welcome addition to the list of wines offered by Schramsberg.
