TN: 2012 Arcadian Pinot Noir Clos Pepe Vineyard

I remember Joe asking people to try some of his wines younger, this is the youngest Arcadian I have so it got opened for Friendsgiving. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

  • 2012 Arcadian Pinot Noir Clos Pepe Vineyard - USA, California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills (11/28/2016)
    really tasty young pinot. This is probably the youngest Arcadian I’ve ever consumed and I do not regret it. It has all that bright red crunchy primary fruit and sappy stem. There’s a nice heft to the wine as well. Some lingering tannin on the palate but there’s this vibrant bracing acidity.

Thanks Charlie for sharing this with the readers here and the friends you gathered together. This wine has only been released to the GCS. I am just now letting go of the 2011 Clos Pepe Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. I hope other will share their reviews of those wines.

Joe has always done a great job with our fruit. champagne.gif

Looking forward to trying some time down the line, when its released.
