2012 Parsons' Ridge Pinot Noir
LIBRARY SELECTION: There is an uncommon amount of concentration and gaminess streaking through all of our 2012 Pinot Noirs, but no wine represents that spectrum more than the 2012 Parsons’ Ridge. Savory herbal flavors, notably sage, intermingle with a deeper version of Parsons’ customary Bing cherry. Chocolate and tobacco notes will increase over time as the fruit recedes a bit.
The typical Parsons’ and lamb marriage celebrates another anniversary with this vintage, but the potential partners for this wine are many, especially on the richer and even spicier ends of the spectrum.
