(From 2012 Vintage) The 2012 A to Z Pinot Noir invites with vibrant aromas of juicy berries, cherries, lavender and violets, evolving to clove, game, smoke and cherry tobacco. A succulent, focused attack has flavors of blue and red fruits, flowers and earth, then deepens with hints of mocha, gingerbread, green tea and cacao. A very ripe tannic structure is balanced by perfect acidity, giving shape and elegance to the concentration of lush fruit. A beautiful, complex, forward wine results, walking a tightrope between richness and elegance. Built for midterm aging, the captivating A to Z Pinot Noir once again sets the standard for the superior 2012 Pinot Noir vintage in Oregon.
Very old world in style. Low alcohol, medium to low fruits, excellent acids and low tannins. Few signs of new oak. Good for food pairing: roast veal, mushroom risotto, roast chicken.
the wine seemed to be faulty although it is a screwcap - tight, dry, no fruitiness, character or length...so either it was faulty or I disagree with nearly everyone about this wine.
Light, smooth finish, very enjoyable. Somewhat fruity.
very good, would drink often, smooth and peppery
light...quite dry...minerally...mild fruit
hints of berries, smooth long finish
