2019 Walraven Pinot Noir
Rich aromas of black plum, dried herbs and bramble provide anticipation for savory flavors of roasted coffee, anise and fig. Juicy and soft, the 2019 Walraven is broad on the palate with supple tannin and moderate acidity. A firm structure and finish provide the framework for a delicious wine.

"This estate vineyard in Boonville has a relatively warm exposition, facing southwest, maturing its fruit in 2019 toward graceful tannins. The fruit itself has quiet stamina, providing a lasting sense of purity, a layered impression of forest berry scents. Fragrant and flavorful, this is a roseate pinot, a pleasure to drink now, with its elements aligned for development ahead." -- Josh Greene, Feb. 2023

"The 2019 Pinot Noir Walraven Vineyard is the most virile of these Pinots from Domaine Anderson. Iron, game, tobacco, incense and leather add quite a bit of feral intensity to this deceptively mid-weight wine. Savory and earthy, the Walraven offers quite a bit of complexity. Give the potent tannins another year or so to soften a touch." -- Antonio Galloni, June 2023
