Ancien Wines Carneros Pinot Noir 2016
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
This is a light, bright and fresh red wine, made well and restrained in its use of oak. Candied plum and cherry flavors meld effortlessly with earthy forest characteristics and a lovely jolt of Asian spice.
Blueberries, crushed violets and spices. The fresh layers of fruit that caress the palate are really pretty, and they sit among fine, soft tannins and bright acidity. Drink now.
Known for elegant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. The cooling winds from the abutting San Pablo Bay, combined with lots of midday California sunshine, create an ideal environment for producing wines with a perfect balance of crisp acidity and well-ripened fruit.
