Frati Horn Anderson Valley Pinot (3)

Did you see in the news they spotted that man in the woods again, licking the ground?

I heard about that.

Yeah, they’re calling him “Johnny Floor-Licker.”

Did they catch him?

I don’t think he’s a danger to the public. He’s just a guy who goes around licking the ground.

It’s so weird. Why in the world would anyone do that? Blech!

They interviewed a guy who used to know him, and he said it all started after he drank a bottle of Frati Horn Anderson Valley Pinot Noir.

What? Why?

I thought it was strange, too. But then I looked up the wine, and it kinda made sense.

Really? How so?

Well, it all starts off pretty normal. Deep, rich color with a nicely-balanced bouquet of rose petal and strawberry. The taste of bright cherry and rhubarb.

Sounds amazing.

But then that’s followed by a long finish of bing cherry, plum, mushroom …

Oh, that’s interesting.

… and then, get this … forest floor.

WHAT? What does that even mean?

No idea. But apparently that guy does. And I say, good for you, Johnny Floor-Licker. Good for you.

Jon Phillips of Inspiration Vineyards and Winery partnered with Anne and George Coughlin on this project; they have been friends for many years.  When John announced in 2009 that he would be making his last Sonoma County Pinot Noir in 2010, they protested and took matters into their own hands; creating a new outlet for Jon to produce Pinot Noir.
Frati Horn means Wine Glass in Boontling, a native dialect from the Anderson Valley where this Pinot Noir is grown. Although asked to keep the vineyard source a secret, fruit was sourced from an ultra-premium vineyard with the goal of producing a premium Pinot Noir that is representative of the very best from this region.
