Winemaker Notes

This 100% Pinot Noir cuvee reflects the cool microclimate of the Sonoma Coast AVA, selected from vineyards in the western portion of Carneros and the Petaluma Gap. The cool windy climate and low yield of these vineyards allow Pinot Noir grapes to mature slowly while retaining their natural acidity, with bright flavors of red cherries, raspberries, and spice. Schug showcases the elegant side of Pinot Noir by aging in large neutral oak casks and older French oak barrels to keep new oak flavors to a minimum.

Lively acidity on the finish makes it an ideal accompaniment to grilled fish and fowl or barbecued meats.

TP 91
Tasting Panel
From the western portion of Carneros and the Petaluma Gap, low-yield vineyards in a cool, windy climate keep the acidity high in this brightly-lit Pinot Noir. An earthy nose with a hint of spicy black tea leads to a peppered, lean palate with touches of nutmeg, and clove. Cherry skin and orange peel are sweet and bitter on the nice, firm, and ripe ending.
D 90
Decanter
A meaty and gamey nose, with ripe red berry fruits and well-integrated oak. It has a fresh, limpid attack on the palate, with bright cherry stone fruit and earthy tones, before the structured tannins kick in.

COMMENTARY: One of the great things about Schug is that this winery makes consistently fine and delectable wines. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows bright red fruit, a zesty palate, and a pure and crisp finish. It should pair nicely with lightly-spiced rotisserie chicken. (Tasted: June 6, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Schug Estate Winery 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.
