Fleshier and more intense than the 2011, the 2012 Emerald Ridge has a mouth-coating level of dark cherry and plum fruit along with attractive musky, earthy notes and an undertone of red flowers and pine resin. Beautifully balanced, as with virtually all the Dutton-Goldfield Pinot's, nothing overdone here. - HK 2016-08-03
