WS 94 WA 93 WE 91 Pts - According to the Wine Spectator - "Distinctly spicy and peppery, with generous flavors of cherry and floral on an open-weave frame, layered, complex and harmonious. The tannins are well-submerged in the mix, and the finish echoes beautifully. Drink now through 2022."
According to Wine Advocate - "The 2012 Pinot Noir Adriane comes from five blocks in the vineyard and was harvested October 8-11 at just 1.25-tons per acre. Matured in 40% new oak, it has a gorgeous bouquet with vibrant black cherry and mulberry fruit interlaced with stony scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, good depth of blackberry and bilberry fruit with a fine, focused structure on the finish. This is a top-notch Pinot Noir. Excellent."
According to Wine Enthusiast - "Intense and spicy, this has a mix of cranberry, plum and cherry fruit, with perfectly ripened tannins and overall balance. There’s a bit of heat in a dark chocolate finish, and in general this young wine should continue to improve with a little more time in the bottle." 14.4% ABV.
