This wine is in its youthful stage and promises to evolve gracefully with time, gaining depth and character.

The fragrance endures, providing a delightful prelude that remains with you as you sip. On the palate, it is light-bodied and crisp, accented by distinctive mineral notes.

The 2022 Anthony Road Pinot Noir, priced at $28.99, opens with an enchanting floral bouquet, which gracefully transitions to a more herbaceous complexity. It exhibits the quintessential ruby red hue that Pinot Noir is celebrated for. On the palate, this wine presents a pronounced tannic structure, leading to a taste profile that includes both bitterness and astringency, reminiscent of a Syrah in its boldness and vigor. This hearty expression pairs exquisitely with robust savory appetizers, particularly dishes featuring mushrooms, as well as with the rich flavors of grilled or roasted meats.

The 2020 Anthony Road Cabernet / Lemberger blend, priced at $26.99, ranks as a personal favorite, featuring a bouquet that is gentle and harmonious.
