Bottled at the same time as the Cargasacchi Vineyard, the 2012 Pinot Noir Fiddlestix Vineyard had no such issues and is a sensational effort that’s firing on all cylinders. Giving up notes of crushed red berries, spice, flowers, and toast, this sexy, pure and elegant effort has thrilling purity and no hard edges. It too was aged in 50% new French oak, and while it’s hard to resist now, it should evolve gracefully through 2020 or so. - Jeb Dunnuck

Dark cranberries, violet and sagebrush form the core aromas, with a bit of buttery crust on the edges of this blend of four clones. The flavors are black and bitter, with strong, plum-skin tannins currently hiding the riper fruit and spice rack that will emerge with more time. Pop this for Thanksgiving 2016 or 2017 to impress the table.
