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
Vinous 88 points (May 2014)
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.
