2012 is an exceptional vintage given the overall quality of the fruit. The grapes came in bursting with flavor and that has given the wines a nice round texture and excellent flavors of fresh forward fruit. I can feel a little more body than either 2011 or 2010, but with no loss of floral aromatics or lightness on the palate. The finish is long. The 2012 Arthur is immediately enjoyable, though one could age it easily for 3-5 years.
