Banshee 2012 Sonoma County Pinot Noir
Wonderful raspberries, black cherry and maybe a dab of pepper. Think Pinot Noir with a cape and red boots. Not shy and ready to say, “duh da tadah!” Powerful and definitely looks good in the cape and tights. Look forward to a solid finish that just won’t quit. This begs to be served with a nice hearty meal.

Winemaker Notes: “The 2012 Banshee Sonoma County Pinot proudly continues upon the tradition we are building for truly elegant wines that deliver an experience far greater than their price would suggest. The aromatics start in a cool perfumy register that is underlined by a touch of forest floor. In the mouth the wine offers a deft balance between just ripe raspberries and boysenberry against a frame of rhubarb and pine. The 2012 also possesses a sense of coiled energy behind its elegant outward appearance.”
