This classic Carneros region Pinot Noir offers a wide range of flavors and aromas, in the tradition of the finest red Burgundies of France. "Clonal diversity" is achieved by carefully blending several vineyard lots, each retaining its own unique clonal signature in the blend. The result is a complex wine with a rich bouquet of cherries, berries and hints of spicy new oak. It has flavors reminiscent of black cherry, currant and strawberry, followed by a rich, spicy texture and a long silky finish.
This wine pairs nicely with lamb, duck, even grilled fish, and will improve with additional cellaring for 2 to 5 years.
Fruity, well balanced. Nice wine
Interesting combination of dried and fresh cherry flavors. Also some burnt caramel. Oak is under control. More austere than a typical Cali PN. Very nice.
Smooth & Supple
Bright and Balanced.. with just a little bit of oak..
