WA 89 Pts - According to Robert Parker - "The 2012 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast is a multi-vineyard blend aged in 90% neutral French oak and 10% new oak. Most of the clonal material is Dijon clones 667, 777, 828 and the Calera clone. Charming red cherry, underbrush and forest floor notes emerge from this already bottled 2012. Soft, round flavors, a sensual mouthfeel, medium body, excellent purity and good length suggest this wine is best consumed over the next 3-4 years."
According to Antonio Galloni - "Dark red cherries, tobacco, wild flowers, licorice and leather meld together in the 2012 Pinot Noir. Soft, supple and accessible, the 2012 is an excellent choice for drinking over the next year. Hints of star anise and orange peel add an element of intrigue on the perfumed, expressive finish. The 2012 was fermented with 10% whole clusters, which are already nicely balanced. The Sonoma Coast Pinot is a blend of 90% purchased fruit and 10% estate fruit."
Winemakers Notes - "Rose petals, orange rinds, raspberries." 13.7% ABV.
