Loring LWC 2012 Pinot Noir Rosella's Vineyard

The LWC 2012 Rosella’s Vineyard Pinot Noir comes from the northern end of the Santa Lucia Highlands in Monterey, California. The Rosella’s Vineyard is one of the most renowned estates in the region, and with its seven clones of Pinot Noir, it is also one of the most complex. Brian Loring has crafted an outstanding wine with his 2012 Rosella’s Vineyard Pinot Noir, a lively, pure, and elegant Pinot that shows off the wonderful fruit characters of this quintessential Santa Lucia Highlands vineyard. Deep ruby in color, the 2012 Pinot Noir has aromas of dark cherries and rose petals, with a graceful mix of black raspberry, blueberry, ripe plum, earthy mushroom, spice and just a hint of toasty oak on the palate. This is a complex, layered Pinot Noir with a nice, smooth texture and a lovely burst of dark berry on the finish. [+]
