WE 94 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - The vineyard lies on the extreme Sonoma Coast, near the settlement of Annapolis, north of Fort Ross-Seaview. The wine shows the crisp acidity and delicacy of the best of these coastal Pinot Noirs, as well as the exotic spices and notes of balsam, chamomile tea and wild mushrooms that accompany the raspberries and cherries. It’s gorgeous to drink now and capable of aging until at least 2022.
Tasting Notes - The 2012 Campbell Ranch Pinot Noir shows depth of color and aroma from the first pour. Deep blue and purple hues fill the glass and are followed by rich aromas of blueberries, blackberries, dark plums, violets and lavender. The wine sits well on the palate - mouth-filling, yet finessed and delicate. The synergies between the tannins and the acids keep the wine lively, fresh and focused. The finish is long and concentrated, showing flavors of dark fruits, spice and a touch of oak. 14.2% ABV.
