Review: Wines of Fathers & Daughters, 2015 Releases
Fathers & Daughters is a brand new winery operating out of Anderson Valley. Its first two wines, a sauvignon blanc and a pinot noir, come from the Ferrington Vineyard. Thoughts follow.
2013 Fathers & Daughters Sauvignon Blanc Anderson Valley Ferrington Vineyard – Minerally and herbal, this grassy sauvignon blanc offers a restrained edge of coconut and pineapple and a relatively simple structure. The finish is not particularly remarkable as the acidity begins to fade by this point, but it pairs well enough with food. B / $25
2012 Fathers & Daughters Pinot Noir Ella’s Reserve Inaugural Release Anderson Valley Ferrington Vineyard – A nearly killer pinot, flush with cherry, strawberry, and raspberry, tempered with slightly bitter/sour rhubarb notes, plus a sprinkling of baking spices and licorice root. Lots going on, but such beautiful balance, with a long finish (though maybe a bit tart in the end). A- / $42
