2012 ESTATE Pinot Noir, Santa Cruz Mtns.

Heady aromas of just rained upon woods, complete with wet balsam, cedar, ferns, fallen logs and wild mushrooms, fill your nostrils and imagination with delicious possibilities! From the first sip, this wine soars in myriad directions, with flavors of raspberry bars, chestnut puree and rye bread pudding with rum soaked raisins and roasted walnuts. The last Pinot Noir from the Estate vineyard, it exhibits effortless grace and a high amplitude of acidity, along with a satisfying satiny texture and a delicate, abundantly pleasing finish. Elusive, yet wonderfully satisfying.
