I’ve never imagined that I would use velvety as a nose descriptor but, that is what is speaking to me with this 2012. The fruits are velvety/ brilliantly floral/slightly candied; raspberries, black raspberries, black cherries, dark cherries, lean/juicy strawberries, plum, blue fruits & cranberries. Dark, rich soils, mix of raspberry & black licorice, sandstone, nutmeg, very soft vanillin, hint of black pepper, understated savory, grilled meats, dry crushed rocks and the full spectrum of bright; red, purple, blue, red, medium dark florals framed in violets. The palate was a bit astringent at first but, has rounded & soften nicely. The mouthfeel is gorgeous & sexy. The acidity speaks to the acid head in me. Really nice showing the beautiful growing season that 2012 brought. The fruits are; brilliantly floral/slightly candied & juicy; raspberries, black raspberries, black cherries, blackberries, dark cherries, lean/juicy strawberries, plum, blue fruits & cranberries. Dark, rich soils, mix of raspberry & black licorice, cola, tree sap, sandstone, nutmeg, very soft vanillin, caramel notes, dark chocolate bar, some melted brown sugar & understated molasses, hint of black pepper, understated savory, grilled meats, dry crushed rocks, moist clay and the full spectrum of bright; red, purple, blue, red, medium dark florals framed in violets. The beautiful, elegant, well balanced finish is gorgeous wire to wire. @Bottega

Delicious and typical RRV Pinot. Very big and fruit driven but doesn't overshadow it's loamy nuances and backbone.
