2012 Sonoma Valley Pinot Noir
The 2012 vintage benefited from a long cool summer and a warm harvest season. The 2012 Sonoma Valley Estate Pinot Noir has a delicious blend of berry fruit and a silky texture. With a few swirls the classic fruit aromas of strawberry, cherry and raspberry fill the glass. The floral scents of rose and violets come through on revisiting the glass. Sweet aromas of honey and maple syrup entice you to take the first sip. The flavors of tart cherries blended with cranberries and raspberries dominate the palate. The texture of the wine is velvety smooth with a hint of tannins in the finish.
