2012 Shoofly Pinot Noir

Click for shelf-talker

Is there really Pinot this good for this price? Roses, cherries, dried strawberries, and smoke waft up from the glass. The silky texture enfolds cherries, rhubarb, allspice, and hints of smoke from a distant hardwood fire. Tarter fruits come through on the mid-palate and linger for quite a long time. Drink with pork chops with cherry sauce. Highly Recommended. 90 Points.
