Domaine Carneros Pinot Noir 2016

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 tannin from this exceptional vintage producing an intense, full-bodied Pinot Noir. Of particular note in this vintage 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. This dynamic wine can be enjoyed alone as an aperitif or matched with a diverse group of dishes such as beef, poultry, pork or grilled salmon, prepared in a variety of culinary styles.

Minerally at the core, with a rich, grainy texture and finely integrated flavors of dried currant, raspberry and cherry, supported by crisp tannins. Notes of orange zest linger on the juicy finish. Drink now through 2023.
