Adelsheim Pinot Noir 2012 mini review

I tasted this one at the Pacific Midwest LCBO tasting event and it was the star of the show! Dark in color with a mild varietal nose of soft red berries and rustic notes. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with soft red fruits rustic notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice firm tannins and some peppery notes along with some nice dryness and complexity. Yum. This is a VERY nice Pinot. I would give it an 89 or so.
