Aubert Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2012

$159.99

Limited new Pinot release from one of California's top producers Aubert. 95 Points Robert Parker:  "An exceptional perfume of rose petals, loamy soil, raspberries, blueberries and spring flowers jumps from the glass of the 2012 Pinot Noir UV-SL. Primarily Calera clonal material with some Vosne-Romanee suitcase clones, it was fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged 12 months prior to being assembled in tank and then bottled without fining or filtration. This beauty should age effortlessly for 10-12 years."

I’m not in at winery or retail price but pre-aged @ $50 on the secondary market, yeah, ok. The nose reveals; ripe, sour, dark cherries, blackberries, black raspberries, dry cranberries, strawberries, plum, raspberries & blueberries, spice, clove, cinnamon stick, nutmeg, vanillin, anise to black licorice, sweet tarriness, dark, rich, earth, tree bark/sap, eucalyptus, maple syrup, dry crushed rocks, volcanics, limestone with some very bright, brilliant, candied fresh & withering; dark, red, purple & blue florals. The nose at this point is better than the palate. Ripe, sour, dark cherries, blackberries, black raspberries, dry cranberries, strawberries, plum, raspberries some rhubarb & blueberries, dark spice pronounced palate heat, clove, cinnamon stick, nutmeg, vanillin, anise to black licorice, dark, sweet tarriness, dark, rich, earth, tree bark/sap, eucalyptus, dry stems, maple syrup notes, dry crushed rocks, volcanics, limestone with some very bright, brilliant, candied fresh & withering; dark, red, purple & blue florals. The acidity is a February waterfall in Hawaii. The finish is a little hot but, palatable, well balanced, nice tension & structure, elegant, lush, ruby, persistent, landing on deep spice & earth. Hits 9.2 rounding up a bit.

Velvet glove, iron fist. Bottle evolved over the hour it was in my glass. I'd love to get my hands on some with some more age to see where it goes. No signs of the alcohol but it is big.
