PinotFile Review
Rated 92
Moderately light cherry red color in the glass. Lovely aromas of cherry pie glaze, Asian 5-spice and a compliment of oak. Flavorful on the attack and soft and smooth on the mid palate, with a juicy core of cherry fruit. More polished and elegant in the vintage, with less color and fruit intensity, finishing with polish. A velvet hammer of flavor.

Wine Advocate Review
Rated 90
Coming from a vineyard planted in 2008, located just past Sebastopol on the Sonoma Coast, the 2012 Mardikian Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir has a pale to medium ruby color and an earthy, meaty, gamey nose over a core of dried cranberries, potpourri and kirsch. Medium to full-bodied, it is showing some nice bits of evolution in the mouth, giving savory flavors and pleasant yeasty/meatiness, plus a grainy backbone and long, lively finish.

Wine Tasting Notes
In its fifth year (and second vintage) we find the vineyard offering fruit from two additional blocks (of eight planted), increasing the number of clonal selections in this vintage to six, with a resulting step up stylistically, offering a richer, more complex wine worthy of considered contemplation. The character of Mardikian is still being revealed as the insights we gain from spending more time farming this treasured vineyard leads to all that Jim Pratt, Sander Scheer and our team hoped when we first dusted our boots with these soils.
