Simi Carneros Pinot Noir 1996

Pinot Noir from Carneros, California

Price: $9.99
Item No. 13617

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Light garnet

Aromas: Bright forward fruit and hints of spice.

Flavors: On the palate the wine is soft, supple, and complex with flavors of raspberry and bing cherry with overtones of exotic spice.

Comments: With Pinot Noir, the site, winemaking and aging treatments have a significant impact on the style and expression of the wine. The winemakers at Simi favor cool, east-facing slopes for the fuit source. Punchdown fermenters and small tanks reveal vibrant fruit. Delicate barrel-handling practices preserve the fruit and yield a delicious bottle of wine. - Roger Goldschmidt, Winemaker
