Pinot Noir, ‘Comptche Ridge’, Anthill Farms
This remote vineyard is located in a small natural clearing above the town of Comptche, just inland from the northern Mendocino County coast. Comptche Ridge is dry-farmed on a complex mix of fine sandy-clayey Franciscan soils, and is ringed completely by high redwoods and Douglas-fir. This vineyard is planted primarily to Swan clone.
Flavors run deep and show a mix of red and black fruit with brushes of tilled soil and a bit of game meat. The wines is seamless and deep with flavors that impact the palate sweetly.

Press & Reviews
The 2016 Pinot Noir Comptche Ridge Vineyard is a powerful, exotic wine. Dense and almost inky, the Comptche Ridge presents a decidedly powerful, brooding expression of Anderson Valley Pinot. Hints of leather, smoke, tobacco and grilled herbs add nuance to this deeply resonant, expression of Pinot from Anthill Farms. There is so much personality here.
