2011 Estate Pinot Noir is light ruby in color with aromas of raspberry, briar, Bing cherry, iron and earth. The palate shows berry and black cherry along with a spicy, sassafras-like note, and a hint of dried
fruit. The 2011 is a bit lighter in weight than our typical estate Pinot, but still has wonderful intensity of flavor, with a long, earthy finish.
"The dark ruby-colored 2011 Pinot Noir Estate Carneros offers pleasant cherry, raspberry and strawberry fruit, Burgundian-like, soft forest floor notes, medium body, a round personality, soft tannins and fresh acids. This complex, evolved beauty can be drunk over the next 2-3 years. "
