Vintage after vintage, Jenkins delivers a rich, flowing expression of Pinot Noir with big tannins and alluring fruit—and 2012 is no exception. While this wine showcases plenty of fresh-picked wild strawberry, pomegranate and raspberry jam layers, there are also more savory flavors of white pepper, iodine and sage, as well as a hint of briny ocean air. This is a particularly great showing for Jenkins Vineyard!
"Another winner is the 2012 Pinot Noir Jenkins Ranch. Deep ruby/plum-colored with loads of damp earth, steak tartare, bouquet garni and black raspberries, this wine exhibits good sweetness, plenty of glycerin, but a nice, vibrant mouthfeel with uplifting acidity and well-integrated tannin. "
