The 12 is starting it prime drinking window. It’s round, full and elegant mouthfeel is stupendous.

The fruits are ripe & lush. Blackberries, dark cherries, plum, blueberries painting the background, soft baking spices, dark fresh florals, rich forest floor, good round acidity and long, well balanced, elegant finish.

Had this in the vineyard two days ago. Fairly rich and robust compared to many other Sta. Rita Hills Pinots. Definitely a crowd pleasing, showy wine.

Drinkable and flavorable but no sense of place. I would expect at least a hint of minerality from the region but the extraction hid all of that.
