Winemaker's Notes:

"Medium red. Cherry and raspberry aromas complicated by musky espresso and smoky oak. Suave, fine-grained, broad and dry, with soil-inflected flavors of red fruits and baking spices. Very nicely balanced, natural pinot, finishing solid and long, with dusty tannins and meaty, leathery suggestions."

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.
