Winemaker's Notes:

The Saintsbury Carneros Pinot Noir 2009 has aomas of black cherry, black tea and tangy plum. It has a rich mouthfeel and long, lingering finish.

To achieve a style of wine Saintsbury believes delivers varietal and regional integrity they undertake a careful, methodical exercise in blending. The Carneros bottling consistently delivers distinctive Pinot Noir character of black/sour cherry and spice in a vibrant and elegant wine.

About Saintsbury:

Saintsbury specializes in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Chardonnay is fermented and aged in barrels coopered in Burgundy. Three styles of Pinot Noir are produced: "Garnet" is a fresh, lively wine full of cherry and raspberry fruit; the wine simply called Carneros Pinot Noir is a more classic rendition; and the Reserve Pinot Noir is the richest and most fully flavored of the vintage.
