Winemaker Notes

With a dazzling ruby color this wine greets the taster with beautiful aromas of cherry, raspberry and plum sprinkled with cinnamon, leather and a hint of caramel. A vibrant entry leads to layers of ripe, red berry flavors that are brightened with a delectable acidity that lengthens the finish. Supple tannins add texture, while spicy notes of clove, cinnamon and sweet oak intensify the complexity of this classic Carneros Pinot Noir.

Impressive for its density and complexity, this is layered, displaying ripe black cherry, mineral, spice and cedar. Medium- to full-bodied, ending with firm tannins and a savory herb and berry edge. Best from 2011 through 2017.

A pleasantly rich, vibrant Pinot Noir, made in a lighter style. Shows mouth-filling flavors of raspberries, cherries and toasted oak, with a long, spicy finish. Bright acidity makes for a clean, crisp feel.
