    Winemaker Notes

    Rose and violet mix with strawberry, cranberry, and cherry. Ripe plum fills in along with the usual darker touches of graphite, cola, clove, and pepper. The palate is full of textural, mouth-coating tannins lightened with a bright acidity. Fresh cherries, raspberries, and plum dominate. The fruit moves towards a long, tannic finish with earthy spices and piquant minerality.

    As early as the 1970s Carneros became known as a source of terrific Pinot Noir, and was one of the first California regions to gain such a reputation. The combination of sunny days, cooling fog and thin clay soils are tailor-made for the variety. Another factor in Pinot Noir’s prominent place here is vintners’ willingness to experiment widely. The history of the grape in Carneros is marked by continuous research into clonal variations, viticultural techniques and site selection. Careful evaluation over time has revealed a signature flavor profile as well. Complex aromas and flavors of cherry, red berry, spice, earth and cola appear time and again in Carneros Pinot Noir. To this day the appellation remains one of California’s standard bearers for the variety.
