2012 Pinot Noir, Stone Corral Vineyard

Deep, bright red. Heady, exotically perfumed aromas of fresh red berries, sandalwood, potpourri and Asian spices, with a mineral topnote building slowly. Silky, seamless and appealingly sweet on the palate, offering intense raspberry and spicecake flavors and a sexy rose pastille accent. Finishes very long, with excellent clarity and lift and supple, late-arriving tannins. - Josh Raynolds

2012 Pinot Noir, Chorro Creek

Sage and anise characterize the nose of this single-vineyard offering. On the palate, there is a distinct element of elderberry, a native fruit to the Central Coast, as well as the expected balance between slightly grippy tannins and a bright acidity. - M.K.
