Aromas of oyster shell and dark berries with plenty of dried strawberries and spices. Medium-bodied, very tight and focused with silky tannins. A fresh and slightly salty finish. Crisp and vivid. Drink or hold.
The 2012 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast is a beautiful wine that comes from four vineyards, Gap’s Crown, Griffin’s Lair, Terra de Promissio and Walala. It has a deep ruby/semi-opaque color that is followed by a youthful, rich and concentrated wine offering classic dark cherries, plum, licorice, ground herbs and baking-spice-driven aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, layered and structured, it opens up beautifully with air, has seamlessly integrated fruit, tannin and alcohol, and stays classy and nicely focused on the finish. It can be enjoyed now with a decant, but will be better in another year, and have over a decade of longevity. (JD)
Mineral and saline notes give the 2012 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) much of its distinctive energy. Dark raspberries, flowers, mint and spices open up in the glass, all supported by a very classic sense of Sonoma Coast energy. This is the most structured of the appellation wines in the range. (AG)
Focused on pure, ripe plum and black cherry flavors, this is supple and structured, ending with a mix of baking spices, anise, mocha and black tea notes. (JL)
Bright ruby-red. High-pitched red berry and cherry aromas, with a spicy nuance building in the glass. Downright racy for a Kosta-Browne pinot, offering nervy cherry and raspberry flavors underscored by smoky minerality. Closes with repeating spiciness, silky tannins and a touch of bitter cherry that adds a sensation of grip. (ST)
Juicy, well-ripened, black cherry fruit is teamed up with a fair bit creamy oak and accented with a wee hint of cocoa in the very direct and outgoing aromas of this generous, full-bodied Pinot, and even though underlain by a spry streak of acidity, the wine shows a certain fleshy succulence that gives it a good deal of immediate appeal. Still, it is never fat or unwieldy, and those who choose to set it aside for a few years should be pleased that they were willing to wait.
