2012 Pinot Noir
The 2012 growing season produced exceptional Pinot Noirs throughout the Sonoma Coast and beyond. Like many of our 2012s, our Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir displays lush red fruit, with lovely spice and sassafras notes. Though already precociously inviting, it possesses the ample structure, acidity and tannins to age beautifully. On the nose, aromas of cherry, raspberry and plum mingle with notes of cedar, tobacco, smoked meat, fine herbs and forest floor. The mouthfeel is rich and fleshy, offering flavors of black cherry, raspberry, brown sugar and cardamom. Fresh, enlivening acidity from the relatively cool growing season balances this wine’s weight, and leads to a long, satisfying finish.

“This beauty is a real steal in terms of high quality at a reasonable price. Deep ruby, this exuberant, delicious Pinot offers up notes of roasted herbs, forest floor, plum sauce and black cherries followed by a deep, rich, full-bodied, round and luscious wine. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.” - Robert Parker

“Medium red. Expressive aromas of cranberry, plum, brown spices and forest floor, along with a meaty nuance. Supple and bright, with dark plum and earth flavors lifted by aromatic spices. A very representative, ripe Sonoma Coast blend with good breadth and immediate appeal.” - Stephen Tanzer
