picking day Planted and organically farmed by proprietor Arturo Robledo and his son Art Jr., this benchland vineyard has multiple clonal selections and is located on Laguna Road, just east of Vine Hill. A rigorous selection paved the way to craft just five barrels of Laguna in 2012. We continue the practice of appreciating Lagunaís fruit purity with an 11-month ťlevage in neutral and once-used French oak barrels. Showcasing its distinct voluptuous, heady fruit, this seasonís Laguna Pinot Noir is a joy.

The 2012 Laguna is a clear, brilliant, light ruby. Warm strawberries, bay leaf, candied ginger, watermelon and a mineral note are some of the aromas present on the nose. The palate is silky with high acid and fine tannins. The palate echoes the nose with the addition of an appealing bitter note in the finish and hints of black licorice. This is the most open of the new releases. It is full of character and energy. Already delicious, this should continue to show for at least another 6 to 8 years.

“A cooler, more savory side of the Russian River comes through in the 2012 Pinot Noir Laguna, largely because of the presence of the Martini clone in this site. Sage, rosemary crushed rose petals and sweet spices all waft from the glass in a mid-weight Pinot loaded with class and personality. ” — Antonio Galloni
