Blue Slide Ridge Pinot Noir 2012

Varietal

Pinot Noir

Growing Year Info

This was a fairly mild year, similar to 2007 and 2009. The harvest looked like it was going to be early because of the early heat and bud break, but this ended up being a long, drawn out season with consistent growing temperatures. The wines have good tannins, structure, and a nice acid balance, due to the long growing season.

Tasting Notes

The 2012 Blue Slide Ridge Pinot Noir has an incredibly supple nose of blue fruit, violets, kirsch and cranberry. The palate is powerfully structured and focused with black raspberry, boysenberry, and notes of java and spice.
