Tasting Notes

Our 2014 Pinot Noir once again focuses the spotlight on Carneros, beautifully complemented with some dramatic cool-climate sites on the outskirts of the Russian River Valley. Lighter in color than our 2013, this vintage demonstrates the captivating combination of elegance and power that makes Pinot such a global phenomenon. A beautiful perfume of strawberry, bright plum, spiced tea and sweet pipe tobacco invites you in. The palate then takes over with more juicy strawberry, cranberry and darker plum followed by a smoky, savory spice box wrapped in velvety soft tannins. This wine is exactly why people say that Pinot Noir goes so well with everything!
