Wonderfully layered and sensual in the glass, the 2012 Pinot Noir Comptche Ridge is all about texture, silkiness and polish. Dark red cherry, plum, licorice, smoke and star anise are some of the many notes that grace the palate in this exquisite, layered Pinot. The 50% whole clusters add lift, but are also beautifully integrated. The Weir brothers own Comptche Ridge, a remote, dry-farmed site in Anderson Valley. Anthony Filiberti farms the vineyard and makes the wine, half of which is bottled under Filiberti's Anthill Farms label, while the other half is bottled under the Comptche Ridge Vineyards label. The wines are identical. More importantly, though, Comptche Ridge is emerging as a site capable of yielding exquisite and distinctive Pinots. (AG)
Bright red. Musky black raspberry, cola and floral pastilles on the perfumed nose and in the mouth. Smooth, sweet and seamless on entry, then chewier in the mid-palate, offering intense, Asian spice-tinged red and dark berry flavors and a hint of black tea. Finishes smoky, spicy and long, with fine-grained tannins adding shape and gentle grip. (ST)
