Another great 2012. Touch of earth, mushroom, orange peal. Bright acidity. Good when you open it, but decant and it gets to be incredible.

More pencil and earth than fruit but secondary cherry and strawberry notes. Lush and round mouth feel. Clean and well balanced

We drank the 2005 St. Innocent Temperance Hill Pinot Noir on the same evening to compare it with the 2012. The '05 has more nuanced layers and aromatics at this stage, but the 2012 shows considerable promise as well. Black raspberry and black cherry aromas lead into fragrant lavender, anise and crushed stones. On the palate, this fresh and lively Pinot boasts ample concentration and structure, with a buttery, toasty note on the backend along with baking spices and dried herbs. This should evolve nicely with time and patience.

Very nice 2012 from Willamette Valley. Balanced and smooth with dark berries very present.

I have high expectations for @stinnovent #pinotnoirs and it did not disappoint. White pepper, mushroom, dark cherry, vanilla, cola and a hint of barnyard right off the bet, then a hint of violet to follow all that
