On the nose, darker fruit aromas of freshly picked cherries, plum, and cranberry abound. This Pinot
Noir fills the palate with luxurious red fruit flavors that are enhanced by a note of exotic spice
(a trademark of Carneros Pinot) and a touch of new French oak. The wine’s acidity is in perfect
balance and the mouthfeel is supple and broad – a hallmark of superb Pinot Noir.
Smoky notes rise from the glass opening to dark cherry, strawberry
and cocoa powder with a hint of subtle baking spice. There is a luscious blast of black
cherry on the palate, with oak notes and pleasing mouthfeel. Herb and oak
show midway through the palate and carry through to the smooth finish.
