Clos de la Tech Releases 2012 Santa Cruz Mountains Estates Pinot Noir

Our favorite Clos de la Tech release to date, the 2012 SCME is a monumental wine that combines power, elegance, exoticism and age-ability. Here is what the winery has to say about this great new Pinot:

“2012 was the first vintage produced entirely at our new, underground winery. Having complete control over every step of the winemaking process allowed us to micro-manage the harvesting, sorting and vinification of our fruit. Couple that with another year of vine maturity and we were able to produce some of our finest wines ever. The dark color is an indicator of this wine’s amazing concentration. The aromatics are powerful and ripe with cherries, blueberries, blackberries, slate and leather. The palate is rich, round and moderately tannic. Our 2012 SCME is one big, serious, age-worthy bottle of Pinot Noir.”
