Cakebread Cellars- 2012 Two Creeks Vineyards


The cool climate of the Anderson Valley region creates very aromatic Pinot Noirs. In 2012, Cakebread Cellars produced the first vintage of Two Creeks Vineyard. Grapes were sourced from 2 single vineyards located in the Anderson Valley of Mendocino County. 43% of the grapes came from the Apple Barn vineyard and 57% came from the Annahala vineyard. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks, and was transferred into French oak barrels where it aged for 10 months.

This wine was very fragrant with aromas of roses, raspberry, strawberry, red cherry, and plum. On the palate the wine tasted of darker fruits like plum, blackberry, black cherry and spice. The wine was rich with velvety tannins but very elegant in texture. It tastes great now but could last at least another 5 years.
