Today’s Quick Sip is WALT Wines Anderson Valley Blue Jay 2012 Pinot Noir. WALT Wines is located in Sonoma, California, and owned by Kathryn Hall, proprietor of Napa Valley’s Hall Wines. The WALT label honors Kathryn’s parents, Bob and Dolores Walt, who were both dedicated winegrowers. The WALT label specializes in small-production, single-vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines, with a laser focus on the latter. The winery produces upwards of twelve different Pinot Noirs from select sites along the Pacific Coast, covering terrain from Willamette Valley, Oregon to Sta. Rita Hills, California. I can tell you from experience that you generally get what you pay for when it comes to Pinot Noir. The WALT 2012 Blue Jay is an attractive bottle of wine for the money that would be a great addition to the dinner table. For further information and where you can find this wine, please see my tasting notes below.
