The Nelson Hill 2013 Pinot Noir comes from the family's Deep End Vineyard, a rocky, south-facing property located on a steep slope only a few miles from the Mendocino coastline in the 'deep end' of Anderson Valley. This exceptional bottling is dark ruby in color with bright, fruity and floral aromas of crushed cherries, raspberry tart and orange blossoms. On the palate, this Pinot Noir shows satisfying and sappy flavors of black cherry, black raspberry, cola, spice and toasty oak, supported by a plush and velvety mouthfeel and a finish with impressive length.
