Aubert, UV Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012, Sonoma Coast, California
Tasting Note: A robust, aged, Sonoma-Coast pinot noir filled with complexity and depth.
Medium-intensity ruby in color with some flecks of garnet around the edges, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of black cherry, black plum, cassis, rosehip, strawberry, clove baking spice and blossom.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied pinot noir has medium-plus-intensity, red-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and ripe, medium tannin ultimately completing with a cassis-infused, long finish.
The wine is slightly creamy in texture with punctuated moments of black fruit peaking through.
A supple, elegant pinot noir that shows what Sonoma Coast can deliver.
