Ponzi Vineyards Pinot Noir 2012
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Light and silky, bright with cherry, raspberry and cinnamon, coming together harmoniously against refined tannins on the expressive finish. Best from 2016 through 2022. 8,000 cases made.
This bottling occupies the middle step between Ponzi's Tavola and reserve-level Pinots. The exceptional 2012 vintage delivers a wine with unusual concentration for its price. It presents a refreshing mix of briary berry, mineral, hints of chive, pepper, chocolaty barrel notes and a suggestion of yeast, and is finished with fine-grain tannins.
