    Winemaker's Notes:

    This classic Carneros region Pinot Noir offers a wide range of flavors and aromas, in the tradition of the finest red Burgundies of France. "Clonal diversity" is achieved by carefully blending several vineyard lots, each retaining its own unique clonal signature in the blend. The result is a complex wine with a rich bouquet of cherries, berries and hints of spicy new oak. It has flavors reminiscent of black cherry, currant and strawberry, followed by a rich, spicy texture and a long silky finish. This wine pairs nicely with lamb, duck, even grilled fish, and will improve with additional cellaring for 2 to 5 years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Medium ruby color; subtle spice and creamy black cherry aromas; ripe, black cherry and savory cranberry flavors with spice notes; some oak and tannins; good structure and balance; long finish. Spicy and rich, this Pinot has good, forward fruit; great for near-term consumption.
