Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Pinot Noir The Stalker is Rollin Soles' "effort to keep it fresh." In 2011, he decided he wanted to do something different: this is a ripasso style of Pinot, or at least his own unique take on it. The berries from Wits' End and Marsh Estate vineyards are destemmed, and when the whole berries are doing the cold soak, Rollin dries the stems and then adds them back in to the blend. This is the second vintage, the name given after the cellar hands labelled the barrels thus. It has a well-defined bouquet with damp undergrowth, wilted rose petals and a vein of blueberry infusing the red fruit profile. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, well-judged acidity and plenty of sappy red berry fruit on the finish that begs another sip. I like this...plenty of character, cohesive and delicious, quite complex fruit, but it deserves 2 or 3 years in barrel. 324 cases produced.
