October 12, 2012


The 2009 Waits-Mast Pinot Noir from Deer Meadows Vineyard in Anderson Valley, which received a 94 point rating, is included in Wine & Spirits‘ 100 Best Wines of 2012. The feature is part of their Winter 2012 issue and 26th Annual Buying Guide. The wine is among eight Pinot Noir wines featured from California and Oregon in the list. The editors describe it as having "a rich red fruit flavor of tiny woodland berries, tart and fragrant. There’s a salty porcini note, a coastal forest feel, delicate and harmonious.”
