    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 growing season presented nail-biting challenges that we won't soon forget—frost, wind and hail—yet this Pinot Noir proves that the vintage created many remarkable wines. The orientation and topography of our Carneros vineyards worked in our favor: much of the cold rolled off the slopes, inflicting relatively little frost damage. Mother Nature's mood turned benevolent just in time for the grapes to ripen under ideal, mild conditions. Thanks to great work in the vineyards—and a little luck—we harvested grapes of excellent quality despite temperamental weather conditions.

    Our 2008 Pinot Noir, Carneros, opens with ripe plum, raspberry and blackberry aromas that are perfumed with rose nuances. The rich fruit character is echoed on the palate, picking up notes of nuttiness from oak aging. Fine tannins structure the wine, while bright acidity nicely balances the medium-bodied flavors and gives a bright raspberry flourish to the finish.
