"The 2012 Pinot Noir from Boar’s View, a blend of Calera, Mt. Eden and Swan clones, was aged 11 months in three separate French cooperages. This wine shows loads of sweet plum, Asian spice, black cherry and blacker currant notes, good acidity, medium to full body, and a nice, long layered mouthfeel. It’s still young, but promises to drink well for another 7-8 years."

"The 2012 Pinot Noir The Coast is terrific. Ripe, juicy and explosive to the core, the 2012 blossoms with notable depth and texture, all beautifully balanced by the salinity and structure of the coast. The style is bold, ripe and exuberant, with all the elements very nicely balanced. This sumptuous Pinot is going to offer a wide window of fabulous drinking pretty much upon release."
