2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

The rich deep ruby color of this wine and aromas of black cherry and blueberry might prepare you for a big bold RRV Pinot but this wine also offers up aromas of cigar box, rose petals, and pencil shavings.

Tasting notes:

The 2012 growing season was the first warm year after two very cold vintages. The wines from this vintage are very high quality and are great expressions of where the grapes were grown. Similar to the 2014 RRV blend, it shows classic aromas of cherry cola and dried hay but also plentiful black tea notes and a hint of Jasmine. The palate is generous with lots of cherry and ripe strawberry. There is also a nice earth component with spicy cedar notes. It is soft and pretty on the palate with lots of natural silky tannins from the fully developed grape skins that give the wine a velvety feel.
