2012 Beaux Freres - more have arrived

Do not miss the great 2012 vintage from Oregon

2012 Beaux Freres Pinot Noir The Upper Terrace...$95.99
Deep, bright ruby. A complex, intensely perfumed bouquet evokes candied boysenberry, cherry-cola, incense and smoky minerals, with a sexy floral quality slowly emerging with aeration. Powerful, slow-to-unfold dark berry flavors show superb depth and energy, with an undercurrent of spiciness. Extremely young but there's serious potential here. Finishes sweet and long, leaving smoke, cola and rose pastille notes behind.
Rated 94+/100 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

This is the first time we have seen this one.....
2012 Beaux Freres Pinot Noir Zena Crown...$95.99
100% French and we used about 40% first year barrels.
only 261 cases produced

Tasting Notes: The 2012 Beaux Freres–Zena Crown is imbued with aromas of nutmeg and Asian five spice stitched together with black current and wet granite; and a pallet that almost shimmers with lively acidity. What makes this wine special is how the acids and ripe tannins create an amazing mid palate and the extremely long finish.
