2012 Anthill Farms Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1155565 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. White pepper-accented red fruits on the nose, with a sexy floral nuance adding complexity. Lively raspberry and bitter cherry flavors gain sweetness with air and are sharpened by a bitter blood orange quality. Shows strong fruit-driven appeal and a silky character, finishing with very good cut and length and soft, sneaky tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2014)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is floral, juicy and expressive. Freshly cut flowers, mint and sweet red cherries meld together in a soft, approachable wine with tons of near-term appeal. Dried rose petals and violets linger on the soft finish. This is a gorgeous Pinot and a wonderful introduction to the Anthill Farms wines. The Sonoma Coast is a blend of fruit from Peters, Tina Marie, Campbell Ranch and, for the first time, Hirsch. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2014)

K&L Notes

This is the second vintage of Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir from this producer, which has been gaining notoriety over recent years for their single-vineyard bottlings, and it's a beautiful introduction to their style. The fruit comes from two very cool vineyards in the appellation - one at the edge of the Petaluma Gap and the other just a couple ridges inland from the Pacific further north. The results? Pinot with tension and grace. The 2012 is floral, with savory herb notes and fresh tangerine zest. A touch of graphite leads the palate, which follows with earth and fruit and plenty of fresh acidity.
