    A refined expression of great Carneros Pinot Noir. This wine is beautifully balanced and subtle. Intertwined aromas of raspberry, cherry and red currant are forefront from start to finish. Seamlessly multi-layered with fruit and oak spices of clove while nutmeg and smoke melt into a lingering berry and vanilla oak finish. The gentle tingle of acid keeps the berry fruits level and make for a wine that will age gracefully.

    Tasting Notes

    Heady aromas of raspberry, cherry and wild strawberry jump from the glass, tinged with notes of anise and coriander. Pure and vibrant, the wine delivers sweet red cherry and berry flavors that pick up spicy notes of clove and cinnamon and a hint of toffee on the finish. Fruit concentration, bright acidity and velvety tannins are the hallmarks of this estate-grown Pinot Noir.
