2012 Adastra Vineyard Pinot Noir, Los Carneros
licorice, black cherry, vanilla custard, redwood bark, raspberry, spicy cranberry and dark plum
Certified Organic vineyard that gives us small yields and gorgeous Pinots... planted in 1994 to clay loam soils, low elevation, in the heart of Carneros with cold, brisk winds; the perfect place for stunning Pinot noir!
The bouquet is a deep, well-integrated symphony of notes – licorice, black cherry with vanilla custard, a hint of briar, hay, and redwood bark. The flavors are bold, and comforting nips of raspberry, cherry, and dark plum yield to spicy cranberry on the mid-palate. The texture is built of silky tannins akin to the lush feel of high thread count sheets on skin, and the finish lingers and lingers.
