Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Carneros Pinot Noir is crafted in the elegant European style that has been the hallmark of the family's winemaking philosophy since 1980. The morning fog, strong afternoon winds, and rocky sub-soils of the Carneros region contribute unique spice and earth notes to the juicy berry and cherry flavors, supported by firm acidity on the long elegant finish.

James Suckling
A very rich, concentrated and supple pinot that has a wealth of ripe and plush red and black cherries, as well as a cola-like edge to the finish. Drink now

COMMENTARY: With the demand for Pinot Noir at an all-time high, uncovering top examples are harder than ever. Fortunately, the 2016 Schug Carneros Pinot Noir is here to bring relief to the budget conscious wine connoisseur. TASTING NOTES: This attractive wine offers excellent ripe fruits and a bit of lavender in its aromas and flavors. The wine's raciness matches it well with grilled salmon. (Tasted: June 6, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Schug Winery Video

Founded in 1980, Schug Carneros Estate Winery is the showcase and life-long dream of one of California's most celebrated winemakers. Walter Schug's reputation blossomed during his tenure as Founding Winemaker for Joseph Phelps Vineyards in the 1970s, where he made California’s first proprietary Bordeaux-Style blend (Insignia) and legendary vineyard designated Cabernets (Backus and Eisele Vineyards).

Drawing on his long experience in the production of fine wines in both Europe and California, Walter set up his own winery with his wife Gertrud in the cool, marine climate of the Carneros Appellation. Here he could focus on the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varietals that had always been close to his heart.

Schug Carneros Estate Winery combines old world understanding and tradition with modern winemaking techniques. By using only the finest grapes available, and maintaining the best winemaking values, these wines have gained acceptance worldwide as true contemporary classics.

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.
