2012 Paul Lato "Happiness - Hilliard Bruce Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1177068 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A smoking Pinot Noir, Lato’s 2012 Pinot Noir Happiness Hilliard Bruce Vineyard sports a deep ruby color to go with incredible aromas and flavors of raspberries, cola, dried spices and assorted floral nuances that continue to develop with time in the glass. Coming from clones 667, 777 and Calera, it has a gorgeous richness and depth, yet stays elegant, lively and pure, with a core of sweet fruit and a clean finish. There’s an almost Burgundian-like quality here, yet it has fabulous fruit and texture. Enjoy this beauty over the coming 7-8 years or so. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Pinot Noir Happiness Hilliard Bruce Vineyard captures the essence of this great Sta. Rita Hills site. Racy and beautifully textured, the 2012 races across the palate with black cherry, plum, spice, violets and menthol, all in a pliant, expressive style that offers considerable immediacy, among many other virtues. Attractive spiced overtones add nuance on the close. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2014)
