Domaine Carneros is a singular winery best known as a small grower-producer of methóde traditionnelle sparkling wine, Pinot Noir, estate vineyards, and a breathtakingly beautiful château. Domaine Carneros Pinot Noir begins in their five different Estate Vineyards, which are certified by Fish Friendly Farming and located within four miles of the château. The 2016 edition of the Estate Pinot Noir packs a full range of red and darker berry flavors. Beginning with the nose one encounters bright raspberry and cooked cherry notes along with hints of sassafras and freshly turned earth. Ten months of barrel age lends a sweetness that balances the supple tannins from this exceptional vintage producing an intense full bodied Pinot Noir. Of particular note in this edition is the juicy and sweet fruited entry upon the palate, backed up by delicate spice notes that lead to a lengthy, warming finish. The hallmark of Domaine Carneros Pinot Noir is the texture, and this wine delivers with a supple and silky mouth-feel.
