2012 Pinot Noir Bannockburn

Violets and roses, with a potpourri of spice box elements. A very textural rich palate of vibrant fruit without a hint of heaviness or excess. Intense concentration is coupled with a purity that enables every subtlety to sing through. This being a combination of the three estate vineyards, the subtleties are manifold, each contributing to the complexity rather than being lost in the blend. The structure is confidently firm but not aggressive.

Michael Cooper's Buying Guide, 2014

The 2012 (*****) is deeply coloured, fragrant, vibrantly fruity and supple, with youthful cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing lovely richness and harmony.

eRobertParker.com, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, October 2013

Medium ruby-purple-colored, the 2012 Bannockburn Pinot Noir opens with attractive aromas of black cherries and black raspberries and underlying violet, aniseed and charcoal suggestions. Medium-bodied with plenty of mouth filling black and red berry flavors, it is structured with a medium level of finely grained tannins and crisp acid before finishing with good length. Drink it now to 2018+. 91 points
