Wine Description

With lifted red fruit aromas, ranging from pomegranate and red cherry to wild strawberry and raspberry, and a spicy entry of baking spice, forest floor and sandalwood. Refined tannins and ideal natural acidity frame the lush, intricate flavors.

A true ruby color is the first telltale of this intriguing Pinot Noir. Driven by aromas of black cherry and red berries, the fruit core of the 2012 Carneros Pinot Noir is later enhanced by exceptional cedar and cardamom spices. On the palate, the wine is plush and elegant, with saturated dark fruit flavors and welcomed oak and forest floor notes. This cooler vintage offers ideal natural acidity, refined tannins and a generous, yet balanced, finish.
