The 2012 Pinot Noir Legan Vineyard, from the southern edge of the Santa Cruz Mountains, fleshes out beautifully in the glass. Sweet red berries, rose petals, mint and a hint of orange peel meld together in a Pinot of nearly indescribable elegance and class. The 100% whole clusters are beautifully integrated and are felt mostly in the wine's structure, but less in the aromatic/flavor profile. A final burst of Chambolle-like sweetness leaves a lasting impression. What a fabulous wine this is. (AG)
(made with all whole clusters, from 33-year-old dry-farmed vines on their own roots that are planted on sandy loam at an altitude of 1,400 feet): Brilliant ruby-red. Highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh strawberry, raspberry, blood orange and candied rose. Deeper-pitched cherry-cola and candied violet qualities become spicier with aeration, showing very good depth and mineral lift. Finishes tangy and quite long, with resonating minerality and gentle tannins. (ST)
