This is a sexy, lush, perfumed Pinot boasting notes of strawberries, cherries and forest floor, presented in a medium-bodied style. Consume it over the next several years.

All of the fruit and grape must is purchased, then assembled and bottled."

"Our Carneros Pinot Noir is medium bodied with cherry, cola, plum and blueberry. It is well structured and elegant with lingering spicy/earth notes and cherry flavors throughout the mid- palate. The vanilla and toast integrates well with the silky round tannins on the lengthy finish." ~Winery notes

"Every once in a while we are presented with wines that are complete “no brainers”, and Sean Minor’s wines certainly fell into that category. They all offer tremendous quality and balance at incredibly low prices.

Sean Minor has been in the wine business for 20+ years, starting at Beaulieu Vineyards and then moving to Oregon to run King Estate and Benton Lane wineries. He then returned to California to oversee Renwood Winery and then started his own label in 2005.

In 2011, Sean began to offer wines under the Sean Minor label and the Sean Minor Four Bears (which refers to his four children) label. The Sean Minor label features premier regions from California and now includes the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Carneros Pinot Noir and Napa Valley Red Blend. The Sean Minor Four Bears label represents the same quality in an affordable, everyday style and includes the Central Coast Chardonnay, Central Coast Pinot Noir, Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc and Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon.

Sean’s goal is to keep costs down and yet maximize quality at every step. As Sean states, "My winemaking philosophy is to offer wines that exude quality and truly represent the appellation from which they’re produced, yet are affordable for everyday enjoyment." To achieve this, he starts with a base for each wine that he crafts from grapes he vinifies at his winery. He augments this with selected lots of purchased wines when top quality juice comes available on the bulk market."~Distributor Notes
