Deep garnet in color, this Pinot Noir is elegant with finely textured tannins and vibrant acidity. Bing cherry and sultry red plum combine with floral notes of rose hip and enticing spices. Sweet, toasted oak notes impress on the round, lengthy finish.
This Pinot Noir is made from the historic Dijon 115 clone from Burgundy, which is celebrated for its intense flavor, excellent color, and the lushness and finesse it imparts into the wine. Carneros is the perfect place in Napa Valley for growing fine Pinot Noir and this clone, as it achieves its elegance and full expression when grown in cooler regions. Carneros receives constant cooling from the San Pablo Bay.
