Tasting notes:

2012 definitely gave us wine with big personalities and the Floodgate Pinot Noir is that gal with the big smile, quick to laugh and always a sparkle in her eye. The wine's aromas are opulent and full of Bing cherry, cola, strawberry, and a hint of catmint. The palate is a bit more restrained but does stand out for a Cartograph Pinot as being lush and full in the mouth. An early pick preserved the vibrant acidity that helps give this wine a complex and long finish.
