Patiné 2012 Pinot Noir, Gap's Crown Vineyard, Sonoma Coast, CA
Vinous.com rating: 91+..."Patiné's 2012 Pinot Noir Gaps' Crown impresses for its density and power. Sweet red berries, flowers, spices and mint meld together in the glass. The 2012 is more compact and less perfumed than the 2011. It was also bottled just a few months ago, so I imagine it will be more expressive once it fully comes together."
