Clos Pegase Mitsuko’s Vineyard Carneros Pinot Noir 2012 Napa Valley, California 

My Rating 87 Points.   

Price $40.
Light Ruby in color with a brick rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, licorice, oak, vanilla, barnyard, earth, bell pepper, spices, chocolates, vegetables, alcohol and peppercorn.

Medium bodied and smooth, with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, wild strawberries, red currants, oak, vegetables, smoke, plums, earth, mushrooms, peppercorn, spices and herbs.

Nice finish with soft tannins and raspberries.

A Nice Napa Valley Pinot Noir. This Single Vineyard is smooth and elegant with nice complexity and balance. Not my style, but definitely above average.

Good right out of the bottle and gets better in the glass with a smooth and luxurious mouthfeel.
Drinking very nicely now.

14.2% alcohol by volume.
