2012 Joseph Phelps "Quarter Moon Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1215294 94 points Wine Enthusiast

 *Cellar Selection* This sophisticated, pretty Pinot Noir is brilliant in exotic cherry, raspberry and earth. Bright and lush on the palate, the tannins are firmly structured and nicely rendered with a twinge of sweet tobacco and a subtle power that builds on the finish.  (12/2004)

93 points Vinous

 Another rich, intense Pinot, the 2012 Pinot Noir Quarter Moon Vineyard offers plenty of power, but the profile is a bit more savory and mineral-driven than in the Pastorale, with less mid-palate exuberance and plenty of persistence. Hints of rose petal, lavender and cinnamon add the final layers of nuance. (AG)  (1/2015)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright ruby-red. More meaty on the nose than the Pastorale, with a strong blackberry flavor dominating. A step up in texture and sweetness too but this very dense wine is distinctly brooding and backward today. Drier on the back end than the Pastorale, and not showing quite that wine's oaky sweetness. This too closes with good peppery verve.  (5/2014)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Earthy and ruby-colored as well as crisp and fresh is the 2012 Pinot Noir Quarter Moon Vineyard. With abundant notes of blackberries and raspberries intermixed with a notion of wet pebbles that gives the wine a striking minerality as well as medium to full-bodied flavors, this tight, backward, promising 2012 Pinot will benefit from another year or so of bottle age ...
