"The older vines bring more structure and black fruit to all of the Anden Vineyard Pinot noirs. The vineyard is now in good balance and produces wines with a sense of wildness integrated with sweet, dark fruit components. The difference in structure between the earlier vintages of Anden, and Seven Springs wines, has narrowed with increased health of the vines at the Anden site and the maturing of the Seven Springs vines. The 2004 Pinot noir, Anden has lush wild, black fruit, spice, and pepper aromas. Those same aromas are reflected onto the palate which is full with dark berry fruits, pie spices, black pepper flavors. Immersed in the dark fruit components is an inherent sweetness and richness to the flavors that reflects widely over your palate. The tannins are ripe and substantial, and are in harmony with the powerful fruit. This is a blockbuster wine that needs 2-4 hours to open and will probably drink better the second day. All of the 2004s have the balance of acid and tannin and moderate alcohols that will allow them to age effortlessly. The '04 Anden will improve for at least 12 years. Anden Pinot noirs have multiple layers of flavor. They match best with richly flavored foods with similar layers of flavor. Roast leg of lamb, duck, cassoulet, hearty beef roasts, and wild mushrooms are great matches. When drunk young, this Pinot will benefit by decanting with vigorous aeration 2-4 hours before serving.
