Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Cellar Selections 2015

December 01, 2015

We're excited to announce to that our 2012 Waits-Mast Pinot Noir from Deer Meadows Vineyard was ranked #34 in Wine Enthusiast Magazine's new Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2015. The magazine culls from a long list of wines across countries, regions, varietals and producers the best age-worthy wines reviewed this year. These are wines of structure and finesse, destined to gain complexity over time. We're proud to be one of just a handful of domestic Pinot Noir producers included and one of two Anderson Valley wines represented.

We can tell you from experience that our now sold-out 2009 Deer Meadows Pinot Noir developed even more nuanced and exotic aromatics and flavors over time. Read the review of our 2012 wine from Wine Enthusiast's December 2015 issue:

95 Points. Waits-Mast 2012 Deer Meadows Vineyard Pinot Noir (Anderson Valley): This full-bodied wine has a treasure trove of flavor complexity and great balance. The color is a deep red with an auburn rim. Aromas present a fascinating medley of cherry, black tea, rhubarb and pine forest, while the flavors weave together ripe Bing cherry, crisp raspberry and subtle Asian spices. It’s delicious, and best to drink after 2017.
