Boars' View The Coast Pinot Noir 2012
Wine AdvocateFor the 2012 Pinot Noir The Coast, the winemaking team went for muscle, structure and density with the Calera, Mt. Eden and Swan clones. It exhibits a dense ruby/purple-tinged color as well as a sweet bouquet of raspberries, black cherries, earth and spring flowers. Juicy and succulent with a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and terrific acids buttressing and giving delineation to this complex Pinot, it will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, will hit its peak in 5-10 years, and last for 12-15. This is a heck-of-a debut offering from Carol and Fred Schrader.
Wine SpectatorIntense and vibrant, with deep, vivid, youthful blackberry and wild berry fruit that's tightly wound and supported by firm, spicy tannins. The impressive finish reverberates. Best from 2015 through 2027.
