Winemaker's Notes

The Fleur de Carneros is our Beaujolais styled Pinot Noir. Winemaker Melissa Moravec has been able to create a consistent style in this wine, renowned as one of the finest Pinot Noirs available . . . and at an affordable price. Bright strawberry aromas and a hint of typical Carneros spice, prepares the palate for an abundance of fresh, vibrant fruit flavors complemented with a touch of French oak. The tannins are soft and the velvety fruit lingers long into the finish. This wine has become a staple on restaurant wine lists and in fine wine shops in the U.S. and abroad. Enjoy this wine with a wide variety of dishes like: grilled chicken, pasta, pork chops, turkey, calamari, crab cakes and salmon.
