The 2012 Robert Stemmler Pinot Noir Carneros Estate is deep, dark ruby in color. Big, broad, and bold aromatically, infused with luscious aromas of black raspberry and black cherry. Wildly opulent, juicy, and weighty, yet perfectly light on its feet. Like all the top 2012 Pinot Noirs, this is a powerhouse, filled with crushed red- and black-fruit preserves, finishing with excellent vibrancy and persistence. Drink now for its primary-fruit hedonism or lay down until 2020.
