2012 Cataclysm Pinot Noir
LIBRARY SELECTION: The powerful fruit and structure of the 2012 vintage makes this the most muscular version of Cataclysm we've produced. This block has some of our younger Pinot Noir vines (planted in 1999) and this vintage hints that the roots have wended and wound their way down through the upper layers of fine löess soil from the Missoula Floods (the "cataclysm" in question) and into the heavier volcanic soils below. Warm, dry weather that lasted late into the growing season contributes to a concentrated character and richness on the palate.
