WINE SPECTATOR, NOVEMBER 2014

2012 Bethel Heights Vineyard Pinot Noir Flat Block – 95

Glass smooth and polished, brimming with boysenberry, plum, rhubarb pie and exotic spice flavors, coming together into a taut, medium-weight and expressive finish, persisiting impressively. Drink now through 2022. -H.S.

2012 Bethel Heights Vineyard Pinot Noir West Block – 94

Fleshy, open-textured and light on its feet, with pretty strawberry and tomato leaf flavors that widen into red plum and spice elements as the finish expands and lengthens. Drink now through 2022. -H.S.

2012 Bethel Heights Vineyard Pinot Noir Illahe Vineyard – 94

Firm and focused, in an expansive style, this light-footed version melds black currant, plum and delecate spice flavors into a mouthfilling package that floats long through the finish. Drink now through 2022. -H.S.

2012 Bethel Heights Vineyard Pinot Noir Southeast Block – 93

Fresh and vibrant, glowing with black plum, blackberry, cassis, and minerally spice flavors on a plush frame. Open, but not heavy, showing generous intensity on the long finish. Drink now through 2022. -H.S.
