On the palate, the wine has lovely
textured flavors of apricot and stone fruit with an intriguing mineral note that sets it apart from
most other white wines., with a crisp acidity and a balanced, generous finish.
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.
