Winemaker's Notes

Crafted from vines planted to higher elevation on our Los Carneros estate, the 2018 Pinot Noir, Spire is savory on the nose with sage, rosemary, cardamom and clove spices accenting black cherry and raspberry fruit. The palate is lush and full-bodied with an expansive core of dark fruit and wild strawberry notes, stitched gracefully together with velvety, satin-like tannins, and a nice balance of acidity which transitions to a long, shimmering finish.
