The 2014 Carneros Pinot Noir is light ruby red in the glass. This has an earthy nose, with notes that pop with aromas of baking spices, especially cinnamon. The palate offers bright, fresh flavors of Rainier cherries and vanilla, and a round mouthfeel.
Our Napa Valley collection sources grapes from our four vineyards, and some from our favorite neighbors, including Beckstoffer, Red Barn, Quarry, and Sangiacomo. Our Napa Valley Cabernet, Chardonnay, Petite Sirah, and Pinot Noir are all aged in French oak barrels, with one-third in new barrels, one-third in once-used barrels, and one-third in twice-used barrels, for balance.
