Pinot Noir, Carneros

2014

___________________
Winemaker Notes
Situated south of Napa and Sonoma, and just north of the San Pablo Bay, the Carneros appellation is directly influenced by the fog and cool breezes that come off of the Bay. This cooling effect results in Carneros being much cooler than its northern neighbors, Napa and Sonoma, and an ideal location for cooler climate varietals like Pinot Noir. Our Pinot Noir is comprised of Clones 115, 2A , 667 and Pommard; this variety allows us to capture the more elegant side of a traditionally "finnicky" varietal.

Tasting & Pairing
Soft notes of strawberry and cherry on the nose, with a lightly spiced and sweet cherry entry. The mid-palate is accented with cinnamon stick and toasted oak. The finish is well-balanced, supple and exquisitely smooth. Enjoy with roasted chicken, mushroom risotto or grilled lobster.
