Simi Simi Pinot Noir Sonoma County 2012
The aromas in this vintage jump from the glass. Fresh and evocative, the nose suggests cherry tart straight from the oven. Big and bright cherry, plum, and cranberry interlace with savory notes of gingerbread, sage, and fire-toasted oak, subtly smoky with a hint of minerality. Subtle notes of smoke complete the aromatics. A seamless combination of bright fruit and earthy notes that are fresh, forward, and intriguing. This wine wakes up the palate with bright notes of sour cherry and cranberry. The fruit is framed with hints of toasted bread and smoke, followed by ginger and earthy notes of sage on the mid-palate. Baking spice notes draw you further into the glass to explore that darker plum character that is nicely structured with firm acidity, balance, and a lingering finish of red raspberry, flinty smoke, and toasty oak.

I don't quite find all of the tastes listed in the write-up, but this wine has a good fruit up front, nice spice tastes and a great finish. I like it a lot and would recommend adding it to your cellar.

Notes on the Simi Pinot Noir Sonoma County 750ML 2012

Wine Maker Notes Simi's 2012 Pinot Noir comes from three prestigious Sonoma County appellations where morning fog is slow to lift and evenings are quickly cooled by the Pacific Ocean—precisely the growing conditions favored by this grape variety. Each sub-appellation produces fruit with distinct Pinot Noir qualities. Carneros and Sonoma Coast source fruit from the Sangiacomo and Hendricks Vineyards, while Dutton Vineyard provides fruit from the Russian River Valley. Carneros (46%): Fruit from this cool region gives focus, balance, structure, purity, and notes of red cherry and dried flowers. Sonoma Coast (43%): Coastal vineyards deliver depth, acidity, and concentration with raspberry and cranberry fruit. Russian River Valley (11%): The slightly warmer Russian River Valley offers concentration, richness, texture, generosity, and spice highlighted by plum and black cherry fruit.

Technical Notes 2012 was a great growing season for Pinot Noir. A wet spring with rains stopping just at flowering set up an extended ripening season with moderate temperatures 80°-94°F during the day. Foggy mornings and cool nights gave way to a slow, gentle ripening on the vines, providing full fruit expression and maintaining a brilliant minerality and acidity. We harvested the grapes for this 2012 Pinot Noir by hand, starting in the morning of September 10 and ending October 6. The Brix at harvest ranged from 23.0 to 25.4 degrees, absolutely perfect for making a Pinot Noir with the structure and weight we desire.
