Winemaker's Notes

To achieve a style of wine we believe delivers varietal and regional integrity we undertake a careful, methodical exercise in blending. In late winter, after all our lots have completed malolactic fermentation and have been resting in small." French oak barrels, we begin the search for our "Carneros" bottling. In tastingthrough our barreled Pinot Noir we are above all looking for those lots that show the right balance of tannin and acid, coupled with fruit flavors that while rich, dark-red and complex, are not overblown. Our Carneros bottling delivers distinctive Pinot Noir character of black/sour cherry and spice in a vibrant wine of power and elegance. "
