Description

This single-vineyard vintage hails from Los Carneros, a region of Napa greatly influenced by cool marine-moderated temperatures with a geographic alchemy that creates ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noir.  Barrel-aged in French Oak (50% new barrels) for 12 months, it has a fresh, light-bodied profile that allows the grape's unique characteristics to shine through. An inviting, delicate perfume of citrus blossom, bitter orange and pomegranate emerges from the glass, while bright red cherry, vanilla and sweet tobacco flavors dance lightly upon the palate. The mouth is sumptuously smooth, and the firm acidity and delicate tannins provide a lingering finish of soft spice and red fruit.  A true expression of the Carneros terroir, this vintage will continue to reward through 2025. Pair it with all of your favorite vegetarian dishes, gorgonzola, Boeuf Bourgogne, game fare, ragouts, Peking Duck and wild salmon. 
Elegance defined.
