2012 Oregon "Shea Vineyard" Pinot Noir

Always brimming with earthy, organic aromas, this vintage of Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir is no exception and includes the addition of 20% Pommard clone to our previously used 100% Wadenswil. A generous, dark palate is accompanied with light toasty and floral notes and balanced by nice minerality and acidity. While this wine is delicious to enjoy now, its depth and structure promise to make this a vintage to remember and to enjoy even 5-10 years from now if you can keep the bottles around that long.

2012 Sonoma Mountain "Red Dog Vineyard" Pinot Noir

Subtle and alluring, with a finish that goes on for a long, long time. Spices, wood, florals and citrus - this wine has too many descriptors to list here, but you can bet this wine will please the most discerning of palates. The mouth feel is soft and rich, with a considerable acidic lift. Toward the back, it reveals an earthen and tannic strength, and the finish is long and dominated by fine, dry tannins and dried spices and fruits. With age this wine deepens and softens, rewarding the palate, while also exhibiting an even more exotic nose as the bouquet develops.

2012 Sta Rita Hills "Fiddlestix Vineyard" Pinot Noir

This is a bold Pinot Noir, rambunctious in its youth and promising to unfold with grace into its maturity. The nose is densely packed with rich fruits, black cherry, cassis, blackberry, grape blossom, citrus zest, orange blossom, wet slate, cardamom, and blood orange. Intense fresh fruits lead the palate, settling on the mid- palate with focused, ripe flavors of grape, black cherry, cassis, and currants, intermixed with holiday spice, woody notes, cola, and tobacco notes. Brilliant acidity provides brightness and balance while structure, always a strong suit for this wine, is emphasized by mouth-filling tannins. The spicy aromatics continue through the long finish.
