EL MOLINO 2012 PINOT NOIR RUTHERFORD 750mL

Did you catch that?...Pinot Noir from Rutherford? In a part of the valley that is world-renowned for Cabernet Sauvignon, Reg Oliver found a spot that was a bit cooler that it’s surroundings, and thought Pinot Noir would be the ticket… and right he was! Planted using old-school cuttings from DRC, Swan and Calera, as well as a few new Dijon clones, this is has become one of our favorite Pinot Noirs from California!

This 2012 Pinot Noir explodes from the glass with ripe aromatics of red cherry, raspberry, and Kirsch liqueur. Clove, orange ride, and sandalwood play a supporting role with subtle notes of truffle and galsam adding complexity. At first sip one is struck by the rich texture and smooth plush mouthfeel. Ripe, dense, and saturated flavors follow and are framed by round tannins that maintain structure, weight, and length. As such this wine is very approachable, providing wonderful drinking now and will continue to evolve over the next 12 to 15 years in bottle.
