Pahlmeyer Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2012


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Bright ruby color radiates with outstanding depth and intensity. Intense aromas of fresh blackberries, cherries, cranberries and strawberries are blended to perfection with toasty notes from the French oak barrels, and seduce with slight hints of dark chocolate with plum. In the mouth, the wine starts with a great acidity and ample tannins. This wine is rich and concentrated with alternating notes of red fruits, forest floor, black pepper, clove and vanilla seeds. The palate is expansive, enticing and everlasting - a rare combination for Pinot Noir.

Wine AdvocateThe dense ruby/purple-tinged 2012 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast reveals copious notes of brambleberries and mountain berries, forest floor, spring flowers and spice. Medium to full-bodied with silky tannins as well as a fleshy, succulent texture, good purity, and the oak pushed to the background, it should drink beautifully for 10-12 years. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, it was sourced from the Halberg and Wayfarer vineyards.

Wine SpectatorA strong, rich mocha-woody frame wraps around the extracted dark berry flavors in this version, showing some tannic muscle. Within that mix is a seam of elegance and finesse that should only become more prominent with time. Drink now through 2023. 1,440 cases made.
