The textbook vintage of 2012 gave us some exceptional Pinot noir to work with at the winery. The color is iridescent garnet with great depth, thanks to ideal ripening conditions. The nose opens to aromas of bright raspberry, currant and nutmeg. The palate is met with flavors of black cherry, cola and baking spices, all woven together with silky, elegant tannins. The mouthfeel is rich, creamy and has a gentle structure with a lingering finish, characteristic of
the Carneros AVA and this noble varietal.
