Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby in color, the nose of the 2015 Carneros opens with rich, dark fruit aromas, which slowly give way to notes of dried flowers, pepper, and espresso bean. The palate shows juicy and intense cherry and blackberry flavors, layered with earthier, more floral notes, giving way to a lingering spiciness.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This is a layered, concentrated wine, richly woven with flavors of blueberry, strawberry, rose and lavender. Medium in weight, the palate feels compressed and thick but lifted by a lingering floral element.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Carneros Estate Pinot Noir is pale to medium ruby-purple in color with gregarious notes of Bing cherries, rhubarb and pomegranate with suggestions of black pepper, truffles, forest floor and sautéed herbs. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine frame of grainy tannins and background freshness lifting the red berry and earth flavors to a long finish.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Tight and closed, with an edge of loamy earth, dried herb, cedar, anise and sage, ending with firm, fine-grained tannins. Needs time. Best from 2020 through 2027.

The Donum Estate, California
The Donum Estate Winery Image
Since The Donum Estate's first release in 2001, Donum winegrower and founder, Anne Moller-Racke has remained committed to growing Pinot Noir based on a Burgundian grand cru model of estate farming. A Carneros grower for over three decades, Anne has worked alongside the industry's foremost authorities, including Andre Tchelistcheff, Dr. Phil Freese and Dr. Paul Skinner. As the caretaker for Donum's three estate vineyards - most notably, the 47 acres planted to heirloom and Dijon clone Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on Donum's 147-acre Carneros rance - her focus is on crafting wines that not only exhibit regional character, but also possess intensity, grace and power. With just a decade under its belt, Donum has secured a reputation as one of California's top producers of cellar-worthy Pinot Noir.

Carneros Wine

California

View all products

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.

This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Carneros is an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of Champagne as well.
