Claiborne & Churchill’s 2012 Classic Pinot Noir certainly lives up to its name. The fruit for this wine comes from several Edna Valley vineyards, reflecting the excellent terroir of this cool-climate viticultural area while revealing those qualities of structure and flavor that are considered ‘classic’ hallmarks of this remarkable varietal.

Ruby in color, the 2012 Pinot Noir opens with aromas of cherry, plum, boysenberry and spice. Its silky, seductive palate of berries, herbs, cherries, and baking spice has nice acidity, soft velvety tannins, and just the right amount of toasty oak to create a solid structure.
