According to Robert Parker - The dark ruby/purple-colored 2012 Pinot Bluffs is Pali’s early-bottled, more fruit-driven Pinot which spent less time in oak (30% new French barrels). It is deliciously grapy and fruity, with black cherry and plum notes, not a lot of complexity and no evidence of oak. This soft, velvety, hedonistic fruit bomb can be drunk over the next several years. 100% Pinot Noir. 14.5% ABV.
