2012 Bacigalupi Pinot Noir
Bacigalupi Vineyard, Russian River Valley
Our 2012 Bacigalupi Pinot Noir offers a complex array of fresh red fruit that lifts with a lively and explosive effect. There are notes of bright raspberry, ripe strawberry basket and heady oak vanillin background. Native fermentation gives this wine a touch of edgy spices also so welcome in fine Pinot. The palate transitions very nicely with more bright red fruit, balanced acidity and a rich, baby fat mouthfeel that pads the middle and carries the finish. The tannins are very supple and round, making this an incredibly approachable Pinot Noir from release that will drink well if cellared correctly until 2022 and beyond.
