Winemaker's Notes

Flavors of cinnamon, rhubarb, cherry and vanilla drive the nose, ultimately opening up to a nice floral scent. In the mouth, the sweet, rich flavor offers round cherry, with a great length and a long finish. The wine's ruby color reflects the old vine characteristics of the storied Iund vineyard. Elevation in small French oak barrels has allowed the wine's terroir-specific fruit flavors to mature and develop into a refined, elegant pinot noir. This is vintage Carneros, showing strong aging potential and flavors that will blossom with time.

As an appellation, cool summers, moderate winters and afternoon breezes create the distinct characteristics of the Carneros region. The 2006 growing season created the basis for an exceptionally strong offering. A long and suburb growing year with temperate weather during the growing season and mild harvest weather allowed the grapes to hang longer than usual and ripen to full maturity, creating a rich, compelling offering.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium ruby color; deep, rich aromas of stewed cherry, spice and earth; rich, ripe, deep stewed cherry flavors with spice and earthy notes; sweet oak; good structure and balance; long finish. Complex and flavorful, this texture-driven Pinot has a lot to offer some simple grilled chicken."
