Tasting Notes & Food Pairing

The Pinot Noir grapes we harvested in 2012, from all of our sites, were so spectacular that we couldn’t resist fermenting and bottling them all separate from each other. The grapes from the Damiani Vineyard proved to be the most elegant and structured and it became one of two Reserve bottling, scoring 91 points, as well as the Editors Choice award, from Wine Enthusiast magazine. Like our Davis Vineyard Lower Block Reserve, this wine can be paired with all mushroom dishes. Additionally, with the ethereal nature of the Damiani Vineyard Reserve, this is a wonderful match for roasted goose, game hens, pheasant, quail, and other game.

Vintage Notes

With the perfect balance of warm temperatures and occasional rainfall, the 2012 season turned into an exceptional vintage. Bud break occurred during mid-March, about five weeks earlier than usual, and set the tone for the rest of the season. Rivaling the impeccable 2010 vintage, 2012 also saw a large number of growing degree days, ideal for fully ripened grapes and bold wines. Due to the below average rainfall throughout the summer months, disease pressure remained low, allowing fruit to thrive with little intervention.
