2012 Pinot Noir Cornish Point

The Cornish Point spice box is there from the start: cedar and cinnamon, with violets and roses. The palate has the hedonistic richness, complexity and mouth-filling generosity that is the hallmark of this vineyard and yet there is an underlying brilliance and clarity to the flavours that prevents the whole from ever losing elegance. Precise and solid structure keeps the lengthy finish from wandering.

Wine Spectator, MaryAnn Worobiec, June 2014

Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2012 Cornish Point Pinot Noir is scented of red plums, blackberries and wild blueberries with touches of dark chocolate, Szechuan pepper and black tea. Full-bodied and richly fruited in the mouth, it has a solid backbone of medium to firm silky tannins and crisp acid, finished with great length. Drink it now to 2021+. 92 points.
