The 2012 Baxter “Oppenlander” Pinot Noir opens with an amazing bouquet of crushed flowers, Bing cherries, licorice and spices that jump out of the glass. A very masculine wine, yet incredibly refined and juicy. If this were a Burgundy, I’d say Pommard! Full bodied wine, that is rich and very substantial in the fruit department – well-balanced with the right touches of acid where needed! Lush, with an incredible velvety-textured personality. Amazingly long finish loaded with fresh, lively fruit and silky tannins. Only 75 cases produced, and sadly only 7 cases allocated!
