Winemaker Notes

Gorgeous plum, black cherry cola and sassafras on the nose with sweet briar, plum, potpourri, cigar box, and anise flavors. Mouthwatering charcuterie spice on the finish.

Pair with game meats and rich stews.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The dark ruby-colored 2012 Pinot Noir Brown Ranch is the most structured and masculine of this 2012 quartet, displaying a formidable level of concentration, attractive notes of rose petals, blackcurrants and black cherries, good spice and a medium-bodied mouthfeel. This impressive Pinot should drink well for a decade or more.

Saintsbury specializes in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Chardonnay is fermented and aged in barrels coopered in Burgundy. Three styles of Pinot Noir are produced: "Garnet" is a fresh, lively wine full of cherry and raspberry fruit; the wine simply called Carneros Pinot Noir is a more classic rendition; and the Reserve Pinot Noir is the richest and most fully flavored of the vintage.

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.
