Calstar 2012 Pinot Noir

The Sonoma Coast, a world-renowned growing region southwest of the Russian River and just six miles from the Pacific Ocean, is known worldwide for its cool-climate Pinot Noir and microclimates that contribute to slow grape maturation and optimum ripeness. Small lots of fruit were sourced from four exceptional Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley vineyards exclusively for this 2012 Pinot Noir. Deep ruby in color, the Calstar 2012 Pinot Noir showcases hallmark aromas of cassis, dried cherry, sassafras and cedar - notes that set Sonoma Coast vineyards apart. The flavors mimic with aromas with red fruit (cranberry, raspberry, and pomegranate) dominating the palate and secondary notes of bay leaf and white pepper. Soft tannins give weight and structure, while the fresh acidity gives balance and length. [+]
