The 2014 Pinot Noir Peters Vineyard is an attractive Pinot that veers towards the lighter end of the spectrum. Crushed flowers, dried cherries, mint and anise are all nicely lifted in the glass. This is a very pretty Pinot but readers should expect a lighter style. Because of its chemical composition, Peters often yields a naturally cloudy Pinot, but winemaker Anthony Filiberti prefers to leave the wine untouched, which results in a quirky Pinot. Anthony Filiberti crafts Pinots and Syrahs endowed with real personality at Anthill Farms. That said, my sense is that Filiberti would rather be in the vineyard than in the cellar, something that was reinforced by the numerous unsolicited comments I heard from other producers raving about the quality of his farming. As always, the Anthill Pinots see a good bit of whole clusters (50% for the Peters and Tina Marie and 30-40% for everything else) and are aged in mostly neutral oak, with no racking until bottling. Filiberti describes 2014 as a vintage that was nearly three weeks ahead of schedule. Of course, 2015 followed, and it was even earlier! (AG)
