Expert Reviews

Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2012 Pinot Noir displays gorgeous black cherries, mulberries and currants aromas with and earthy / loamy undercurrent. Medium to full-bodied, it is quite earthy in the mouth with firm fine grained tannins and a good amount of refreshing acid, finishing long with a herbal lift. Rating 91 - Drink by 2018, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, erobertparker.com (DEC/2014).
