Poe 2014 Pinot Noir Manchester Ridge Vineyard
Samantha Sheehan founded POE in 2009 after being inspired by the wines she tasted in Burgundy and Champagne. The goal was not to replicate Burgundy, but rather create alluring, vineyard specific, age worthy wines revealing the beautiful terroir of California. There is a minimal intervention, judicious use of sulfur and never any additives. Beautiful notes of bramble, black cherry and allspice, all soar on the nose, while a rich mid-palate makes way for game, mint and sauvage. Ripe tannins and beautiful depth make this an excellent choice for a plethora of dishes. Manchester Ridge Vineyard sits at a 2,000 foot elevation above Anderson Valley. The vineyard is 400 feet above the fog line, where the cool steady temperature allows the grapes to maintain acidity.
