El Rey Wine’s 2012 Vintage Description

Our 2012 Pinot Noir vintage reflects the cool and long growing season – a muscular Burgundian reflection in a new world palate. This year’s wine welcomes you in with a deep ruby hue and aromas of ripe red fruit, baking spices and sweet tobacco. We blend two Pinot Noir clones in our vineyard. The “La Tache”/828 clone section of the vineyard provides the cinnamon, nutmeg, and roasted herb notes, while the 115 clone section provides the backbone of fleshy raspberry, strawberry and sweet dark cherry notes.
