Though much lower in price than the single vineyard offerings—and without the microchip on the label—this bottling carries all of the earthy aspects that characterize this iconoclastic winery. Umami aromas of nori wrap meet with dried purple flowers and blackberry on the nose. The mouthfeel is soft and full, with flavors full of loam, beet juice, incense and crushed boysenberry. *Editors' Choice* (WK)
The 2012 Pinot Noir Santa Cruz Mountains Estates, is the most complete and balanced of the four wines I tasted from Clos de la Tech. Dark cherry, plum spice, menthol, licorice and violet notes abound. Pliant supple and intense, yet also nicely balanced, the SCM Estates makes for a terrific introduction to these racy, fruit-forward Pinots. Specifically, there is a bit more freshness and less oak-inflected heaviness than in the other wines in the range. (AG)
Starts out juicy and lively, featuring black cherry and raspberry notes at the core. This is defined by fine-grained tannins that give the flavors traction. Ends long and clean, with anise and fresh earth scents. Drink now through 2023. (JL)
