Winery Notes:

We enjoy Carneros Pinot Noir, because although the fruit presents itself readily, there is an undercurrent of ‘Pinot funk’ and an earthy element that adds complexity both on the nose and the palate. Judicious use of new oak, just 15%, adds both to the nose and the texture of the wine, but still allows the fruit to be front and center. Dark garnet in color, the 2017 displays black cherry, ripe plum and earthy notes enhanced by toasty oak. Restrained acidity, along with moderate weight and density, gives this wine outstanding balance and structure.

This has a rich and vibrant, red-cherry and plum nose with a wealth of ripe-fruit flesh and bold, crunchy and rich tannins.
