JCR 2012 Pinot Noir Estate Pommard 5, Santa Barbara County, CA
International Wine Cellar rating: 92..."Brilliant ruby. Spicy raspberry, cherry and fresh rose on the nose, with an exotic hint of nori adding complexity. Sappy, sweet red berry preserve flavors are brightened by tangy minerality and a hint of white pepper. Fine-grained tannins come up slowly and add grip to the finish, which leaves an intense raspberry quality on the palate."
