"The 2012 Pinot Noir Lia's Vineyard comes from 21-year-old vines in the namesake vineyard cropped October 12-18, and includes 10% whole-cluster fruit. Initially, there is a sense of conservatism on the nose adorned with more sous-bois, almost autumnal dried leaf scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a saline entry, touches of mocha infusing the black fruit, a little higher-toned toward the finish. Jay Somers forewarned that this might be the last release from this particular vineyard as part of the vineyard on the Pommard clone is severely affected by phylloxera."
