Herbal and spicy, this vibrant red cherry-laced Pinot is tightly woven and expressive. Full in the mouth, it also has buoyant acidity to keep things moving along and steer the wine into elegance. Consider pairing this fine food wine with pork tenderloin lathered in a cherry reduction sauce.

Tight and dense, with a mix of savory dried herb, dried berry, black tea and crushed rock flavors, ending with a long, clean finish. Drink now through 2020. 8,946 cases made.-JL

Bright medium red. Perfumed aromas of raspberry, red cherry, brown spices, flowers and underbrush. Savory and pliant, offering a nice blend of red fruits, spices and forest floor flavors. An easygoing pinot without quite the tangy lift of the 2011 release.
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Oct 2014)
This well-known, long-established Pinot Noir producer has turned out four attractive Pinot Noirs. The 2012 Pinot Noir exhibits a light ruby color as well as lovely notes of strawberries, black cherries and spring flowers, medium-bodied, silky tannins, and enough acidity to provide freshness and vibrancy. Drink it over the next 4-6 years.

Wine maker notes
When sourcing Pinot Noir fruit, we seek those Carneros vineyards that offer diversity in both aspect and clonal selection. The result is a complex and vibrant Pinot Noir most reflective of the Carneros region.
