2012 Pinot Noir Reserve
Beautiful. With a classic pinot noir aroma of red-fruit and spice, this wine is brighter and fruitier than the 2008 Reserve with less overt tannins. A huge hit of sweet dark fruit with a lingering finish, this pinot has intense concentration from start to finish.
“… only made in exceptional years, and 2012 was certainly among the best in memory. Berry, cherry and toast components are here in full meature, with a sumptuos mocha-infused finish…” — P.G.

“It has a well-defined bouquet with precise raspberry, wild strawberry and wild mint scents, but what I appreciate here is the restraint that it shows…” – Neal Martin
– Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate (March, 2015)
“Generous and focused, with blueberry and currant fruit at the core, shaded with hints of white pepper, carnation and clove. The graceful finish takes off and doesn’t stop. Has depth and intensity. Best from 2016 through 2022.” – Harvey Steiman
