2012 St Innocent Pinot Noir Freedom Hill Vineyard

Bright cherry red in color. Spicy, cherry nose. Bright on the palate with cherries, strawberries and a bit of anise. Smooth tannins, nice acidity and balance. Perhaps a touch hot (the ABV is 14.5% if you're interested). Finishes long and spicy. Nice. Fades with 30 minutes of air. I'd drink over the next 2 years or so before the heat becomes more evident. "B+"
