Near perfect weather and decent yields combined to create both great wines and reasonable supply. We think the 2012s will most resemble the 2009s.


WA (91-93) WS 92 WE 92 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - One of the richest of the new Lorings, with pure currant, dark berry, spice, cedar and lavender notes, gaining depth and intensity. Shows pretty oak and mocha shadings in the aroma and on the palate. Drink now through 2023.


According to Wine Advocate - The most impressive of the barrel samples I was able to taste, the 2012 Pinot Noir Garys’ Vineyard sports gorgeous richness and depth, with loads of minerality balanced by clean, pure fruit. Leaning toward the dark fruit end of the spectrum, with a classy, elegant texture and notable length, it should drink nicely through 2020. Drink 2014-2020.


According to Wine Enthusiast - Stash this one in the cellar unil 2019 or 2020. Tasted in January 2014, it’s tannic, tart in acidity and enormously rich in red cherry jam, pomegranate and persimmon fruit flavors, enriched with sweet, smoky oak. A real beauty from this well-respected vineyard.14.8% ABV. Rated 90+
