2018 Anthill Farms Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley, CA


Anthony Filiberti and his future partners met while working at Williams Selyem in 2003, and started Anthill Farms the following year. Today they produce small amounts of very good pinot noir, plus the occasional chardonnay and syrah. The Anderson Valley pinot is bottled from several different vineyards in Mendocino County, and perfectly captures the bright, just-ripened fruit and savory earth accents that have become the area's signature. Terrific value.
