Burton Bittman Tukwilla Vineyard Pinot noir 2012
We featured Burton Bittman 2010 in our September 2013 Reserve Pinot noir Club. It was a huge hit, so much so that we didn't have enough to offer our larger mailing list (there were only 50 cases made). A whopping 75 cases of 2012 were produced, which means we're fortunate to share Anneka's wine and story.
Anneka's winemaking experience began in 2010 at the cellar of Eyrie, with a little nudging from winemaker Jason Lett, then grew to include an internship at Domaine Pavelot in Burgundy. You can see these influences in her wine, and you can see stylistic differences. Both vintages of her Pinot noir have been expressive and graceful. The 2012 opens with penetrating red fruit and minerals, giving way to crushed raspberries, thyme, rose, cream, and cherry candy. There's great persistence aided by flavorful, lively tannins that frame the gorgeous red fruit through the finish. Drinking quite well now (especially with a bit of air), and should have an ideal cellaring window of 3-10 years.
