93 Points Wine and Spirits! - From the team at Domaine Anderson, this is a blend of fruit from nine estate vineyards. After tasting it with our panel, I later tasted it with Darrin Low and Arnaud Weyrich, who worked together on the blend, and who described it as a “New World style; a richer, riper pleasure wine,” comparing it to the “Old World, more transparent style” of the 2015 Domaine Anderson (also recommended here). In fact, I find this to be the more delicate and transparent of the two, open and racy, with a lacy fragrance of red apples and apple blossoms. Perhaps it is more varietal: It just tastes so much like pinot noir in its light wild-strawberry flavors and tight, slightly stemmy tannins. It’s completely appetite inducing, especially with King salmon roasted with chanterelles.  Winemaker notes: Elegant and reserved aromas are pretty with freshly crushed cherry, mushroom and wet earth tones. Generous flavors of plum, blackberry and leather are uplifted with a great texture, silky tannin and crisp acidity.
