The only 2012 Pinot Noir I was able to taste, the straight 2012 Pinot Noir Central Coast is 95% destemmed and spent 11 months in 10% new French oak. A superb value, it gives up ripe berry fruits, flowers, underbrush and rose petal-like nuances in a medium-bodied, ripe, textured and balanced profile. It’s a knockout quaffer to enjoy over the coming 2-4 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

A supple, graceful, charming style, with delicate plum, raspberry and blueberry notes. Pure and pleasing, this is easy to warm up to. Drink now through 2018. – JL

A perfumed and ripe nose features notes of spice, red and dark currant and plum. There is a juicy succulence to the delicious and very rounded middle weight flavors that possess reasonably good depth and fine length on the acceptably well-balanced finish that displays just a hint of warmth. This is actually quite good for a "drink me young" pinot as there is better complexity than one typically finds at the price point. Recommended for value.
