2011 Estate Pinot Noir
Carneros, Napa Valley
Another cool vintage coupled with a late season engendered this seductive, elegantly styled Pinot Noir. Reminiscent of raspberry, wild strawberry, pomegranate and lilac notes, gently spiced with aniseed, sassafras and a touch of juniper berry. On the palate the wine showcases structure over bombast with bright acidity, clean fruit and graceful tannins that linger in the memory.
