J Wilkes 2012 Pinot Noir (Santa Maria Valley)

Lighter in color, this wine comes from the Miller family that owns Bien Nacido Vineyard. Aromas combine brisk raspberry and fresh strawberry with clove. There is a bitterness on the palate akin to sautéed beet greens, followed by pepper spice and more raspberry, with tannins that may evolve over time. Matt Kettmann
