2012 Stiling Vineyard Pinot Noir

2012 Stiling Vineyard

Pinot Noir

RUSSIAN RIVERsonoma county


—  SOLD OUT —

TASTING NOTES

Already showing a remarkable approachability, 2012 is a return to the fuller and rounder style of Pinot we generally expect from this vineyard. Bursting with classic black cherry, strawberry, cola, and baking spice aromas, Stiling waves the Russian River flag with pride. There’s a reason why this wine always brings smiles when we pour – it is simply delicious.

We source from two separate parcels, each with a different exposure, elevation and microclimate. Over the years we’ve come to know these blocks intimately and tailor our vinification accordingly. The resulting blend reflects what we feel is the most complete wine and fullest expression of what Stiling offers us each year.

Although wonderful now, Stiling Pinot always rewards a nap in the cellar if you can restrain yourself.
