    This red-fruit-dominated Pinot Noir is a tart, tannic embrace of earthy minerality, with a tease of citrus. Bright, persistent acidity keeps it fresh and forgiving, making it balanced and food-friendly.

    Barrel Type: Aged 7 months in 100% French oak barrels (25% new)

    A dark and exuberant expression of great Carneros Pinot Noir. Refined and elegant aromas of cherry, red currant, chocolate and faint whiffs of leaf tobacco, this wine is beautifully subtle and multi-layered with oak spices of clove, allspice and smoke. Excellent structure gives it a mid-palate weight and silky sensation from start to finish. Enjoy its perfect balance with just a gentle tingle of acid, which keeps the fruit lively throughout the whole taste. This wine is wonderful straight out of the bottle, but has the concentration and complexity to improve with several years of aging.

    Tasting Notes

    Mouthwatering notes of raspberry, cherry and blueberry mingle with anise, sage and cinnamon in the alluring and fragrant aromas. A vibrant entry leads to layers of intense red berry flavors. The wine's delightful Carneros acidity supports the structure while pleasant tannins add depth to the mouth feel. Spicy notes such as white pepper and cinnamon offer complexity and a beguiling finish.
