This is a winning Pinot Noir from the Carneros region of Napa Valley. Carneros is known for its cool summers, moderate winters and afternoon breezes. We poured this during a recent reception for a group visiting our office and it is terrific.
This has multi-layered flavors of cinnamon, cherry and vanilla. It has a round, rich flavor that lingers on the tongue. It is refined and elegant. The aging is done in small French oak barrels.
When done right, Pinot Noir can display balance and finesse like almost no other wine. This is an excellent example and should pair wonderfully with a wide variety of foods. Highly recommended.
