Wine Spectator, Kim Marcus
"There's loamy richness to the dark plum and cherry tart flavors that are vibrant and savory. Pastry accents midpalate lead to notes of cooking spices on the plush finish."

2019 WALT Blue Jay Pinot Noir Bottle Shot2019 WALT Blue Jay Pinot Noir Bottle Shot

Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
Focused and elegant with luscious cherry fruit and
lifting acidity

Hillside Slopes
Southern exposure, cobbled clay loam soils and
rock outcroppings

Exceptional Appellation
Due to its proximity to cool, steady winds from
the Pacific Ocean

This wine is overflowing with aromas of black cherry, blackberry and loamy earth. The palate is fresh and concentrated, with roasted stem inclusion enhancing the structure and spice. Integrated flavors of dark fruits, barrel toast and clove lead to a supple and delicious finish.

Our 2019 Blue Jay is sourced from a unique set of vineyards from 'The Corner' of Anderson Valley - located in the hills to the East of Boonville. Both of our estate properties have steep hillsides, aspect, and light gravelly soils that combine to create optimal ripening conditions. These very rugged vineyard sites continuously produce fruit of great depth and character.

Vintage NotesThe 2019 vintage began with a wet spring bringing three inches of rain in May. In response to the late rains our vineyards received diligent attention to control vigorous vine growth. A long Indian summer followed with mild weather, allowing the fruit to ripen at slow, even place. The long picking windows bore fruit with beautiful freshness at optimal ripeness. The resulting wines are exceptionally elegant.
