Domaine Carneros Estate Pinot Noir 2015





The 2015 edition of our Estate Pinot Noir packs a full range of red and darker berry flavors. Beginning with the nose one encounters delicate rose petal, fresh plum, boysenberry, notes of black tea and a touch of cinnamon. 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 edition is the juicy and sweet fruited entry upon the palate, and the vibrant mouth-watering acidity present from beginning to end. The hallmark of Domaine Carneros Pinot Noir is the texture, and this wine delivery with a supple and silky mouth-feel and a long lingering finish.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a lengthy and structured wine, made from four estate-farmed vineyards in the appellation. Tangy in cherry and strawberry, it is exotically earthy, with highlights of black tea, cinnamon and wild mushroom.

Wine SpectatorAppropriately firm and flavorful, with a core of blackberry and wild berry flavors and anise and floral scents, gaining depth and tannic weight on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 3,200 cases made.
