Rex Hill Pinot Noir 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2012 REX HILL Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has diversity and depth of flavor opening with aromas of blackberries, blueberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, plums, quince, and many spices from cinnamon to ginger to star anise to coriander. With time, the nose opens further to reveal earth, tobacco, smoke, game, crushed rock and vanilla. Loaded with deep red, blue and black fruit flavors on the attack, the integrity that all classic Oregon Pinot Noirs possess, pulls the palate back from being too rich and ripe and balances the hedonism of the 2012 vintage with beautifully proportioned acidity and minerality. Fine-grained tannins and complex, concentrated fruit flavors lend great length and finish with lingering hints of coffee and cocoa powder. Although the 2012 REX HILL Willamette Valley Pinot Noir will drink well young, it has the balance and structure to age and become more complex over the next 10 years.d

Beguiling aromatics of Bing cherries, ripe raspberries, huckleberries, pomegranate, violets sandalwood, earth and wood smoke develop into deeper notes of coffee, tobacco, cloves, black fruit and soft leather. The palate intrigues with red, blue and black fruit flavors, appealing spice and minerals framed by delicate, ripe tannins. The wine's structure builds gradually through the mid-palate reflecting its intensity balance and potential for longevity.
