Not Vintage Specific
"The foggy, breezy slopes of the Carneros region in the southern end of Napa Valley present an ideal home for Pinot Noir a notoriously challenging varietal. Situated by San Pablo Bay, the clay hills of the Carneros allow the delicate, thin-skinned Pinot Noir to reach optimum maturity slowly and evenly, while low yields ensure rich, concentrated flavors. A small amount of cool-climate Russian River Pinot Noir brings bright red fruit and elegance to the blend.
The scent of blackberry and spicy bramble anticipates layers of lush black fruit and raspberry interwoven with nutmeg, espresso, woodsy cedar and toasty oak. Substantial on the palate with polished, well-integrated tannins, the flavor lingers long after the glass is empty." ~Winery Notes
