Schug sets aside the finest barrel lots of their Carneros Pinot Noir for extended aging to create their "Heritage Reserve" Pinot Noir. Each vineyard lot was chosen to express its own individuality in harmony with the final blend. The result limited bottling that is as rich and powerful as it is graceful and charming. A bouquet reminiscent of roses, warm cherries and Kirsch liqueur leads to rich flavors of black cherry, cranberry, and hints of lavender, all finishing with hints of tobacco and spicy new oak. This wine is perfect for the collector's cellar, and will continue to age gracefully for up to 10 years.
"Deep ruby color; complex black cherry, clove and toasty aromas; deep, full black cherry flavors with complex, clove and oak notes; moderate tannin; good structure and balance; long finish. Very complex and full flavored, this is a big Pinot that is really well balanced. Needs time to open up, but worth it.”"
