2012 Elizabeth Pinot Noir
The 2012 Elizabeth Pinot Noir is, once again, a Cab lovers Pinot - Raspberry, rose petals, classic terroir, leather, baked vanilla and subtle spice on this strong willed Pinot that turns heads for her excellent tannin extraction, fuller texture and deep rich color. This Pinot Noir from our Honey B Estate Vineyard in the Carneros is aged for 10 month in French Oak barrels to give it the perfect creaminess that an elegant Pinot deserves. The balanced acidity, good structure, and delicate tannins combine with the flavors of cranberries, pomegranate, and hints of tea to give the Elizabeth Pinot a richness that makes it the perfect food wine. This wine is delicious now, but has the ageability to be enjoyed 5-7 years from vintage date.
Sophisticated and graceful. Willful, yet fun. Elizabeth is the expression of Thomas’s devotion to and in honor of his mother, Elizabeth Baldacci.
