Jackson Estate Outland Ridge Pinot Noir (1.5-Liter) 2012

Wild strawberry jam aromatics with smoky, briary and raspberry flavors, finished with a burst of blueberry. Cultivated on Mendocino County's Anderson Valley’s high eastern ridge, this remote vineyard is full of chunky, broken rock in thin, powdery soil similar to a Goldridge classification. The Outland Ridge Pinot Noir's vines strain to cling to the ridgelines yet produce deep, profoundly complex and age worthy wines. 1.5 liter bottling.

Acclaim

90-93 points, Robert M. Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate, Dec 2013
"There are nearly 3,000 cases of the 2012 Pinot Noir Jackson Estate Outland Ridge. Made from Dijon clones 828, 667 and 777, this beauty moves toward Pinot Noir’s blue fruit spectrum, displaying notes of blueberries and raspberries. It was aged in equal parts new French, old French and old American oak. A terrific wine offered at a reasonable price, this supple, velvety textured Pinot should drink well for 4-6 years."
