Wow. This is really showing well. Decanted about 90 minutes. The nose is intoxicating; black cherry, black raspberry, cola, rich black soil, charcoal. A solid, intense core of fruit yet very well balanced. Really great stony minerals and firm tannins provide awesome structure. This will continue to get better with additional age.

WNH event number 3...new world Pinot. Such a treat to experience the many different variations of Pinot! A treat to enjoy Aubert’s CIX Pinot with some age to it. The fruit is so fresh and aromatic...overripe dark red fruit with underripe black fruit. I got a rich/sweet note on the mid palate...cinnamon. I think this was your bottle, @David L ? Great stuff.

12' Aubert CIX Pinot Noir. Pull the cork 90 minutes before pouring ... this one is special! Extraordinary effort by Mark. Highly recommend. Drink/ Hold.

Restrained for an Aubert and/or well integrated. Ripe red fruit, some oak and still generally powerful for a Pinot. Overall pretty balanced and a nice wine.

Super fruity. So young but very nice already. 2012 CIX is a surprise to me. Well done.

Amazing texture & purity out of the gate. Blue fruits and savory notes jump from the glass and translate to the palate. I hope I get to try again down the road as this might have been the best cali pinot I've ever experienced.

Young, but complex, deep and elegant. Notes of cardamom, tart cherries and vanilla. Long lingering finish.

From a magnum. Fairly extracted nose of red fruit with a touch of oak. Very balanced on the palate. While is is definitely new world style it is not at all overdone and is in a great place to drink. Long finish. Delicious.
