Witness Tree Pinot Noir 2012


SKU 19557


Deep garnet in color, the Witness Tree Estate Pinot Noir is powerful and yet full of grace with aromas of dark, primary fruits with intense perfume and spice driven qualities. On the palate the wine is round, full and satiny with notes of black cherries, rhubarb, dried herbs and baking spices. The finish is fresh and clean with well-integrated tannins and acid. Though drinking well in its youth, it will definitely reward the patient cellarer. Enjoy this wine with traditional beef and lamb dishes as well as smoked salmon, pork, and cheese.

Wine SpectatorTautly focused, with black cherry and dried berry flavors on a lean frame, playing ripe fruit against smoky, toasty overtones on the sharp finish. Drink now through 2019. 2,186 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Pinot Noir Estate comes from 27-year-old vines cropped at 2.01 tons per acre and matured in French oak of which 20% (Alliers and Voges) is new. It has a restrained, floral bouquet with blueberry and blackberry fruit that are simple, but nicely defined. The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannins, plush in the mouth, but needing more complexity and harmony toward the finish that is slightly driven by the alcohol at the moment.

Neal Martin, March 2015
