    This appellation is widely described as `sprawling` as it encompasses half or more of the county. Anthill Farm`s fruit comes from two of the coolest, most coastal parts of this appellation.The low coast, west of Sebastopol on the edge of the Petaluma Gap; and the high coast, the first or second ridge inland from the ocean farther to the north. These sites are united by the direct influence of the Pacific‘s cool, marine air, delaying ripening well into October. The 2013 is one of the most precise Sonoma Coast wines Anthill Farms have made to date: detailed aromas of fresh-cut cranberry mix with satsuma rind and cracked fennel seed. The palate is warm and inviting, with waves of gentle, liquid tannin spilling over the tongue, all leading to a long, gauzy finish. This wine is quite approachable on release, but three or four years of aging will be very rewarding.

    With this Pinot, Anthill Farms look to create a food-friendly, nuanced wine that represents the unique character of the Anderson Valley. Somewhat remote from most of Northern California’s wine-growing districts, this valley shelters a surprisingly harmonious blend of the wild and the civilized. in one vista, one can see sheep ranches, redwood groves, apple orchards, and impenetrable oak scrub.

    The hallmark of this wine is the spicy, smoky quality that underpins the dark fruit character. Concentrated and with great tension, this is delicious now due to its ripe fruit and balance but could have a long future ahead of it if it is allowed to. In 2000 16 acres of Pinot Noir were densely planted to protect the vines from the ocean winds and to provide heat from the soil. Duvarita starts at around 180 feet, rising to 370 feet and it is farmed bio-dynamically. (Drink from now)

  • The 2016 Pinot Noir (Santa Barbara County) is an addition to Gavin Chanin`s range. Sweet red cherry and floral notes are nicely pushed forward in this tasty, appellation-level Pinot. Drink it over the next few years. -- Antonio Galloni, 90 points, Vinous.

    The 2016 Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict Vineyard reveals a lovely nose of fresh apples, pear, buttered popcorn, and struck match. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied and silky, more giving than the Bien Nacido, with a layered mid-palate and good depth and length. A lovely Chardonnay from this historic Sta. Rita Hills vineyard site. William Kelley 93

    We bring together sites from the northwest end of the Anderson Valley to create the Fog-Eater. This vintage has a savory expression with deeper fruit tones and more tannin structure. This wine was made to embody a heightened level of complexity, roundness and richness. A classic representation of Anderson Valley is the result.

    Another brilliant wine in this range, the 2016 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard is superb. Dense, powerful and beautifully layered, the 2016 exudes richness in all of its dimensions. There is plenty of Hudson textural resonance, but the 2016 is at the same time quite polished and refined. I very much admire the sense of balance. 94 points Galloni

  • The 2016 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is laced with the essence of blood orange, bright red fruit, mint and white pepper. Medium in body, gracious and lifted, the Sonoma Coast Pinot has so much to offer. Year in, year out, Failla`s Sonoma Coast Pinot is one of the very best wines in its price range. Don`t miss it. 90 points Galloni

  • The 2016 Pinot Noir Keefer Ranch is powerful and dense. Succulent dark cherry, plum, licorice, smoke, leather and game run through this mid-weight, somewhat rustic Pinot. It will be interesting to see if time softens some of the angular edges that are present today. Today, the Keefer is a wine of density and gravitas. 92 points Galloni

  • The 2016 Chardonnay Haynes Vineyard, from a site in Coombsville planted in 1964 on St. George rootstock, stands out for its translucence and class. Weightless and yet phenolic in feel, the Haynes is a wine of total distinction. A host of savory and mineral inflections give the Haynes its flavor signatures, but above all else, this is a Chardonnay of structure. 94 points Galloni

    On the nose this shows ripe red apple fruit along with orchard blossom and citrus aromas as well as a saline wet stone minerality. The palate is much tarter than the nose suggests with fresh yellow apple flavours, grapefruit and orange juice. The wine has a precise acidity, subtle toasty flavours of vanilla and cinnamon from oak barrels and has a medium plus length. Drink from 2017.

    This 30 year old vineyard made up from seven acres of Pinot Noir and eight acres of Chardonnay was planted by the Demuth family. The age of the vines enables the vineyards to be dry farmed to improve sustainability.

    This wine offers both the sweet and the savory, with a heady mix of violet, Kirsch, smoked meats, anise and black olives. On the palate, it is firm and full-bodied, with an age-worthy, almost Cabernet like structure. An acid-driven freshness underscores the flavors, adding length and dimension to this sophisticated Syrah.

    Sommelier turned winemaker Leo Steen makes great wines, from chenin blanc. The ’15 Saini Vineyard has citrus fruits, green apple and minerals, in a dry style. Drinking really well now.
