LARUE Pinot Noir, Coastlands Vineyard 2012


2015 TOP 100 WINES | Rank #48

The Coastlands Vineyard Pinot Noir from LaRue is absolutely brilliant in 2012. As this slowly unwinds in the glass gorgeous aromas of black raspberries, wild berries, spices, blood orange, dried floral and even hints of dried sage all begin to take shape in the glass. On the palate this offers a wonderful silky texture, which is beautifully structured with excellent clarity and focus. This continues to deliver all the way though the vibrant finish. Overall, this is a stunning Pinot, but patience will be required. The 2012 LaRue Coastlands Pinot Noir is a blend of three clones: Pommard, Martini, and Wadenswil. 50 cases made, aged for 17 months in French Oak (50% new). (Best 2017-2029) - April, 2015 (JD)
