To achieve a style of wine Saintsbury believes delivers varietal and regional integrity they undertake a careful, methodical exercise in blending. In late winter, after all lots have completed malolactic fermentation and have been resting in small French oak barrels, they begin the search for their "Carneros" bottling.
In tasting through all the barreled Pinot Noir, Saintsbury is 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. The Carneros bottling delivers distinctive Pinot Noir character of black/sour cherry and spice in a vibrant and elegant wine.
"An extremely pretty and notably ripe nose for the Carneros region speaks of cherry and menthol aromas that introduce detailed and delicious middle weight flavors that culminate in a dusty and moderately structured finish of good if not special length. There is good balance and this should age well."
