Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Aromas of black cherries, maple syrup, brown sugar and sandalwood over more subtle notes of graham and cinnamon. The palate is full and layered with black and red fruits over herbal hints of black tea and nutmeg. Mouthwatering acidity and delicate, fine grain tannins carry the wine to a long, harmonious finish. This wine will cellar gracefully over the next ten years.

Wine SpectatorSoft and appealing, with gentle blackberry and black plum flavors riding easily over polished tannins and lingering on the expressive finish. The tannins are well-integrated, the flavors persistent. Drink now through 2022. 3,338 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Pinot Noir Estate Grown comes from various parcels around the estate that was cropped October 2-19 and sees ten months in French oak, 24% in new oak. There is lucidity and brightness on the nose, armed with vivacious red cherry and strawberry fruit that are uncomplicated but full of energy and the essence of "Pinoté." The palate is medium-bodied with quite a sharp, slightly coarse opening. Strangely, this is almost more like a 2011 than 2012 Oregon Pinot Noir with quite an intense spicy/herbaceous finish. Drink over the next 2-3 years.
