Pahlmeyer Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2012
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
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.
