Skywalker Vineyards Pinot Noir is defined by two very separate locations, topographies and soil types. The lower block is located 235 feet above the valley floor on a ridge top facing south and westerly with slopes approaching thirty percent. The warmer of the two sites, it is critically important for Skywalker Vineyards Pinot Noir in very cool seasons (2010, 2011, 2012). The wines made from these grapes are powerful — additional ripeness adds texture to the base of the wine.
Stunning ruby and violet color, speaks to full maturity and a great site. Aromatics are extremely generous in 2012, warm spice, dark fruits of cherry and raspberry, and an attack of supremely dense and sweet fruits followed by a hedonistic, saturated finish that is both lasting and delicate. Cellared in pristine conditions, the 2012 Skywalker Pinot Noir will last a decade or more.
