2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
Pale in color, yet it packs so much flavor. Beautiful structure with hints of cherry, vanilla, slight tobacco and wild strawberry, this wine continues to evolve in the glass. There is a firm acidity that holds everything together. The climate of this vineyard, with the coastal morning fog and cool temperatures, produces an amazing silky texture on the palate. The finish is long and lingering, with a reminder of the intense fruit structure. The 2012 Pinot Noir is aged for 13 months in 1 year old French oak. Russian River Pinot Noir, the gift that keeps on giving. This wine is perfect to enjoy immediately, and will age effortlessly for the next 6 plus years.
