Reserve Pinot Noir
While our debut 2011 North Valley Reserve Pinot Noir hailed from a single vineyard source, our 2012 represents
fruit selected from four different sites, from four sub-appellations, all of real breed. The 2012 vintage was one of our region’s great ones, and this wine will satisfy immediately upon release, while developing complexity in the bottle for over a decade. Aromas and flavors of black cherry, plum and framboise predominate, laced with notes of
earth, dark chocolate and spice. Sweet on the palate, it is finely balanced with underpinnings of real minerality. The mouth feel is velvety, and the wine has fine, silky tannins. With a long, seductive, layered finish, it reveals noteworthy structure, but
doesn’t sacrifice finesse.
