Longtime Pinot Noir lover William “Rusty” Gaffney, M.D., aka The Prince of Pinot, continues his outstanding coverage of the varietal with three pieces on Anderson Valley AVA Pinot Noir. He provides his usual insightful reviews, including 2009s, 2010s and some 2011s Pinot Noirs shown at the 15th Annual Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Festival’s trade tasting, and a breakdown of the 2009 and 2010 vintages. He also covers the Festival itself with detailed notes from a technical presentation on the current state of the AVA.
