Garnet red in hue, this 2012 Napa-Carneros Pinot Noir from the Hudson Vineyard pops with ripe raspberry aromas and suggestions of camphor and red rose. Bright acidity lifts these aromatics and frames a medium-weight, flavorful body that resolve in the long lingering finish with a very subtle touch of toasty French oak. Aged one year in 100% new Burgundian cooperage and another year in the bottle, the 2012 Pinot Noir is drinking very well with ample natural acidity to lie down and continue to develop for years to come.

Wine SpectatorRich and full-bodied, with a touch of gamy smoked bacon amid the taut dried berry, sage and savory herb notes. Firms up in the end, with dry tannins accompanying a nice push of flavors. Drink now through 2021. 670 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastRobust in dark spicy black cherry with aromas and the feel of rose petals, this wine doesn't hold back on oak or power yet remains true to its cooler site conditions, offering crunchy cranberry and earth.
