1995 Farella-Park Vineyards "Elke Vineyards" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (750ml)15 2 0 0
Napa Wine Project
The 1995 Elke Vineyard Pinot Noir for being twenty years old at the time of our tasting still shows plenty of life. An underlying acidity has been the key to this wine holding up so well. Aromatically it shows notes of raspberry, cola, white pepper a woodsy smokiness and notes of brown chocolate. On the palate the wine is balanced; the tannins are smooth yet still noticeable – more so on the sides and back of the palate than on the front and they linger delicately for some time. There are flavors of cranberry and red cherry. If somehow you have the patience to not drink all of the wine immediately after you open it, it is even better on day two.
