This was also our fourth year of trying to go back in time and make Pinot more like we did in the late 1980s. I have long felt that our wines were stunning in those days, full of fruit and structure and classic Carneros flintiness. In recent years, while the wines have still been great, they had moved towards a more classic California jamminess that isn't what I like in a Pinot Noir. I am certain you will agree and enjoy this wine.
This wine is a classic Carneros Pinot Noir with complex and multifaceted aromas of black cherry and brambles, accompanied by vanilla and earthy-mushroom characteristics. Mouth - The nose's cherry/berry characters come through very strongly in the mouth and are enhanced by balanced oak and toast notes. Even more remarkable than the flavors is the wonderfully complex and filling mouth-feel.
