95The Wine Advocate

...precision and delineation is undeniable. The palate is medium-bodied with very supple tannin, here a mixture of red and black fruit... ...unfurls on the finish: hints of dry tobacco and cedar... built for the long haul.

95Vinous / IWC

...Powerful tannins... ...Dark cherry, plum, spices and a host of mentholated, balsamic notes are woven throughout. The 2012 is built for the long haul, that much is obvious... ...I very much like the wine's sense of energy.

Plenty of floral influence on the gorgeously spicy red and black pinot fruit scents... ...excellent volume and punch to the big-bodied, concentrated and brooding flavors that also brim with an abundance of dry extract...

93+ Stephen Tanzer

Bright, full red. Aromas of red cherry, raspberry, clove, minerals and flowers... ...sappy, minerally and taut, with red berry and spice flavors complicated by floral and saline elements... ...powerful structure...

18.5Jancis Robinson

...very majestic concentration and reserved balance.... Quite dry tannins on the end but great persistence. Opening up in the glass with a little bit of orange peel. Really came out over time! Much richer. Pretty stolid.

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
