WINE PROFILE

TASTING NOTES

Stunning. Sleek, yet substantial with the beautiful scent of ripe black cherry, wild berries, violet, warm gingerbread and clove, with traces of allspice. These elements translate gracefully to the palate, with a seamless flow of sweet, floral raspberry that deepens into darker fruit flavors accented by truffle and spice notes. Throughout, the lively undertones of juicy cranberry lend the wine freshness and vitality framed by a sensual, silken texture. Harmonious, forever finish

VINEYARD NOTES

A notoriously challenging and fragile variety, the foggy, wind-swept slopes of the Carneros region, in southernmost Napa Valley, present an ideal home for Pinot Noir. Through repeated tasting trials of our reserve candidates we brought together select blocks from two renowned vineyards in the Carneros AVA: Rancho Carneros and the Hyde Vineyard. The head-trained, dry-farmed vines of Rancho Carneros are over forty years old and bring weight, depth and complexity to the blend. The clonal diversity of the Hyde Vineyard, planted in 1979, further enhances complexity and heightens fruitiness, elegance and structure
