The 2012 Patton Valley 10 Acre Pinot Noir displays all of the site-specific qualities that typify this wine, while also exhibiting surprisingly bold black fruit characteristics. In the nose, this Pinot swells with aromas of blackberry bramble, plum, and fresh-baked cherry pie, complemented by more subtle notes of nutmeg, allspice, potpourri, dried fig, and wet stone. Broad, sensationally soft tannins grace the palate on entry, with bright red fruit and crushed fennel enveloping the mouth. This wine can easily be aged for 5-10 years, but balanced acidity and elegant tannins make it approachable and enjoyable even in its youth.
