Located in the middle of Anderson Valley the Gowan Creek vineyard has a style all its own. This wine evokes every shade of purple on the palate. Bursting with Japanese plum, boysenberry and wild blackberry, the Gowan Creek Pinot Noir is deftly balanced by a richness and roundness that gives this wine its excellent structure. Floral notes of lavender, pennyroyal and cinnamon stick lead to a long and lush finish.
Dark red cherry, plum, mocha, new leather and sweet spices shape the 2013 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Gowan Creek Vineyard. This is an especially succulent, flamboyant style of Pinot and yet all the elements come together effortlessly. Readers who enjoy large-scaled Pinots will find much to admire.
