Meyer Family Vineyards, McLean Creek Road Pinot Noir 2012
Made by Chris Carson, this and the 2013 vintage are no strangers to Decanter praise. Dusty tannins and bright tart cherry and cranberry fruit, spice from the integrated French oak and kept fresh from about 15% whole bunches. Also seek out the McLean Creek Road Chardonnay and micro-cuvées.
Taster: Tina Gellie
Ripe depth, quite Burgundian, more Nuits than Beaune. Showing smoothness and energy, a handmade wine.
Taster: Steven Spurrier
