K&L Notes

Husch, founded in 1967, is the oldest winery in the Anderson Valley appellation which over the last decade has become one of the hotbeds of American Pinot Noir. Sadly though, most people still don't know about the amazing values that the winery puts out year after year. Maybe that is because they don't shout it from every billboard or trade magazine, or maybe it is because they use a little, old horse shed as their tasting bar but you'd be missing a gem of a winery and a myriad of great wines that they continue to produce year after year. This affordably gulpable 2014 Pinot Noir is a perfect example of why we love the wines of Husch as much as we do. (Bryan Brick, K&L)

This affordably gulpable 2014 Pinot Noir is a perfect example of why we love the wines of Husch as much as we do. <BR> From 6 separate sites in the Anderson Valley this Pinot is a testament to the incredibly quality of the region, but what makes it really shine is the incredible value that is found here. Snappy and red fruited on the nose this is also studded with warm spice notes aromatically from the 25% whole cluster fermentation with aromas of nutmeg, gingerbread and juniper dancing over pure cherry/cranberry fruit. Light and lively this is not only a Pinot Noir that you can see through but also one that does not bog your palate down. A bottle of this would go down incredibly quick with its friendly red berry flavors, blood orange tang and silky fine tannin structure. A great $20 Pinot Noir is difficult to find but we really think that this is a “slam dunk” bottle for the varietal and price range.

    Anderson Valley is one of California's most under-rated appellations and thankfully for you the average price per bottle reflects as such. Husch consistently produces restrained wines that show racy red-fruits and earthy undertones. These age-worthy, truly Burgundian wines are available at a laughable price point considering what you're getting for the money.

    If you have shopped at K&L in the last few years looking for cool climate Pinot Noir, it's almost a guarantee that one of our staff members have handed you a bottle of Husch! Long a staff favorite, this 2014 is off the charts with bright cherry and cranberry fruits, a fantastic spice profile from 25% whole cluster and French oak aging, finishing up with a touch of tanins. Overall, this is a simply delicious, must try wine that will please all Pinot Noir fans.

    Founded in 1971, Husch Vineyards is the oldest winery in Anderson Valley. The current Pinot Noir offering is outstanding. Lush dark berries and a beautiful bouquet of rose petals are balanced with soft integrated wood, and bright cherries on the palate. This Pinot Noir embodies the region and it's tradition.

    This is a very tasty bottle of PN from one of the oldest wineries in the area. Bright red fruit with wild cherry and sweet raspberry notes dance on the acid core that drives this wine. A little herbal and spice on the finish along with very soft tannins help round the wine out and bring about a nice finish. Easy to drink at an easy price point this is worth a bottle or two.

    Husch is one of the oldest Anderson Valley wineries with some of the oldest vines in the area. Fruit from 6 sustainable vineyards in the valley were hand-harvested to create this red fruited, easy-drinking Pinot Noir that is full of flavor and great to serve at any time. Bright tart cherries, cranberries and baking spices with a touch of herbs fill the nose and continue onto the palette with light tannins and balance that was thoroughly enjoyable!
