Beaulieu Vineyard Carneros Pinot Noir 1997
from Carneros, California
Medium ruby-violet in color, this 1997 Pinot Noir is not as dense in flavor as the previous vintage, but is even more aromatic. The smell of ripe black cherries, spice, and a light earthiness are very pronounced. The flavors are silky, round, and full of rich red fruits, overlaid by nuances of black pepper and smoke. The finish is supple, inviting one to have another glass... and another! A delicious example of classic Carneros Pinot Noir, perfect with fish and other subtle dishes.

I first had this wine in an Italian restaurant and I must say that to date, its been one I have remembered. It is silky on the palate and compared to a lot of Pinots that I have had, I found it to be flavorful, full-bodied and not too shy on the palate. I will DEFINITELY get it again, preferably with a plate of Carbonara! :-D
