A blast of sweet red fruit, pomegranate, mint, licorice and sweet spices hits the palate in the 2012 Pinot Noir Cerise, a wine of pure density and power. The 2012 needs another few years to fully come together, but it is impressive. This is a decidedly powerful, intense wine from Knez, with remarkable texture and exceptional overall balance. The 2012 was vinified with 40-75% whole clusters, depending on the specific lot.
