Arista Pinot Noir Ferrington Vineyard 2016

$90.00

96+ Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Arista Winery has easily been one of the hottest American wineries in the last half decade and it’s no surprise why. With access to some of the state’s most elite vineyard sites up and down the coast, an estate right next to the legendary Sonoma winery, William Selyem and a scorching hot winemaker, Arista has established itself as a force to be reckoned with. 

Winemaker, Matt Courtney had the incredible fortune of being the apprentice under the super famous, Helen Turley for eight years on her cult project, Marcassin. It’s there he learned how to make Burgundian varietals from one of the best– helping serve their allocation list and their 5000+ person waitlist! 

Since Matt Courtney joined Arista in 2013, the winery has seen 25 of their wines scored 93 points or higher by Wine Spectator.  Even more impressive, they have had 15 wines scored at 93+ points or higher by Wine Adovocate in the 2015 and 2016 vintages alone!!! All of that culminates with today, the 2016 Ferrington Vineyard Pinot Noir. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate bestowed their highest score for Arista yet with this wine (96+ pts), and raved about its “very, very long and layered” finish. This one is an absolute beauty and rare as can be… it’s no wonder we didn’t have enough for an email.

Expert Reviews

96+ Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Pale to medium ruby in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Ferrington Vineyard has a singular nose of dried violets, prosciutto, perfumed earth, potpourri and dried leaves with briary black fruits, bergamot and pipe tobacco—so many layers! Medium to full-bodied, it’s firmly structured in the mouth with grainy tannins, juicy acidity and loads of savory layers, finishing very, very long and layered with wonderful amaro-like bitterness.
