Winemaker's Notes:

Our Carneros Pinot Noir is medium-bodied with cherry,strawberry and plum; surrounded by light toast flavors. On entry, the wine displays blue fruit charactersthat are balanced with spicy and earthy notes that frame the mid-palate. The vanilla and toast integrates well with the silky round tannins on the lengthy finish.
