wa300"Moving further south and from a mix of vineyards in the Santa Rita Hills, Brian's 2012 Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills looks to be superior to the 2011 and offers up a pretty, sweetly fruited profile with a rich, layered and easy-drinking feel. All about pure fruit at the moment, it will be interesting to see how this evolves once in bottle, but it should be an outstanding Pinot. Drink 2014-2019. - Jeb Dunnuck"
