Seven Springs Vineyards Pinot Noir Young Vines II 2012 91+ Points

Very good Pinot color. Second vintage following very promising 2011 (90 Points), even better and more profound, the style is much riper with higher alcohol, yet fully integrated, subtle oak regime, supporting delicately juicy structure, bright, racy and savory, there is a welcoming mid palate stuffing, crunchy ripe tannin's, served lightly chilled if enjoy in summer.
