Chester's Anvil Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2012
Chester's Anvil is a collaboration among friends and neighbors - Aaron and Claire Pott of Pott Wine and Steve Lagier and Carole Meredith of Lagier-Meredith. Forged from long friendship and challenging Mount Veeder surroundings, Chester's Anvil is the result of fiery discussions over dinner, fueled by countless bottles of shared wine. We created Chester's Anvil as an excuse to work together to be able to offer wines beyond our usual purview. As neighbors with an elderly recluse on Mt. Veeder named Chester, both the Pott's and Lagier-Meredith's were asked to help him out one afternoon with some chores. Afterwards they received an antique anvil as a 'thank you' gift. Thus was born Chester's Anvil Wines. Complex and balanced, unpretentious and easy to drink. Wines of pleasure that aren't afraid to show you where they come from. Wines that draw you into the night, to gather at the fire for whispers or tall tales.
