2012 Maggy Hawk Hawkster Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., pH 3.75, TA 0.54, 268 cases. Aged 16 months in 100% French oak barrels, 63% new. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of wild berries, mushroom and earthy humus draw you into the glass. A striking array of rich black cherry and dark berry fruits saturate the palate with joy, fanning out on the finish in glorious fashion. Robust, yet refined, with the balance to last and improve over further time in the bottle. This is a complete wine with every component singing in unanimity. A wine that brings emotion. Score: 97.
