IWC 91 AG 90 Pts - According to Stephen Tanzer - Vivid ruby-red. Fresh red berries, cola, gingerbread and potpourri on the highly perfumed nose. Silky and sweet, offering intense strawberry and black raspberry flavors with suggestions of candied rose and blood orange. Shows excellent clarity and intensity on the spicy finish, with barely a hint of tannins. This suave pinot is delicious right now.
According to Antonio Galloni - The 2012 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley impresses for its overall harmony and balance. The style is rich, voluptuous and inviting, with tons of richness and pure volume. Raspberry jam, wild flowers, rose petals and spices wrap around the racy, inviting finish.
According to Robert Parker - The 2012 Pinot Noir Russian River (10,000+ cases produced) is another six clone blend that offers up attractive jammy black cherry notes along with impressive purity, an elegant, medium-bodied mouthfeel and a front end-loaded style that is sure to attract many consumers. This fruit-forward, delicious, authentic-tasting Pinot Noir will drink well for 3-4 years.
Winemakers Notes - The nose is rich with top notes of black licorice and cola while on the palate, juicy blackberry and pie cherry are layered with cocoa and hints of molasses. The overall impression is of balance between the fresh dark fruit elements and the almost sweet spicy influences.
