2014 Pinot Noir

Lighter in color than our 2013, this vintage demonstrates the captivating combination of elegance and power that makes Pinot such a global phenomenon. A beautiful perfume of strawberry, bright plum, spiced tea and sweet pipe tobacco invites you in. The palate then takes over with more juicy strawberry, cranberry and darker plum followed by a smoky, savory spice box wrapped in velvety soft tannins. This wine is exactly why people say that Pinot Noir goes so well with everything!

Our 2014 Pinot Noir once again focuses the spotlight on Carneros, beautifully complemented with some dramatic cool-climate sites on the outskirts of the Russian River Valley.
