SKU: 2012 Heredity Pinot Noir

In honor of our 20 year anniversary, we've been tasting wines from our history and are inviting you to share our legacy as we release a few of our favorite wines from our history throughout the year.

The Heredity Pinot Noir is our reserve blend, for which we select some of our favorite barrels of a vintage and combine them in a way that we feel optimizes its aroma and mouthfeel. We have the latitude to keep tweaking until we wind up with a wine that we feel evokes the essence of the vintage in a balanced and complex manner. This wine received a 90 from Vinous, formerly Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar.

Wine Profile
Winemaker Notes
Dad: Aromas of perfume and red berries. Lively flavors of red berries and plums followed by minerals. Very long finish of red and black cherries.; Fille: This wine reminds me of Reese Witherspoon- lively, pretty, and displays versatility and clarity. The bright cherry and raspberry nose give way to flavors of red berry, boysenberry, and cedar. This would pair well with Middle Eastern influenced spices and flavors such as falafel and lamb.
