Moonshine Ranch 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 Moonshine Ranch Pinot Noir shows a forward, savory, spicy nose of sassafras, cherry, cola, and pomegranate. The palate is deeply flavored ripe plum and raspberry, with vibrant sweetness.
