2012 Chasseur Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Firm and substantial on the palate, this is a complex Pinot, the red cherry fruit juicy and inviting and the wine layered in Chinese five-spice. Light in texture and weight the wine still offers a sense of place and gravitas."

"Good deep ruby-red. Sappy aromas of boysenberry, raspberry and licorice. Then almost surprisingly creamy and sweet in the mouth, boasting excellent concentration but coming across as more gently extracted than some of the other 2012s here. Finishes with smooth tannins and noteworthy length. Evolving nicely."
90 Points - Wine Spectator
"Delicate and silky, with subtle dried herb, caraway seed and sour cherry flavors. Presents fine-grained tannins along a minerally edge that slowly gains traction. Drink now through 2022. 434 cases made."
90 Points - Wine Advocate
"From multiple vineyards, the 2012 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast reveals crunchy black raspberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with foresty notes. This medium-bodied, pure, effusively fruity Pinot has some serious density and structure behind the flesh, and can be enjoyed over the next 8-9 years."
