2017 PINOT NOIR, Los Carneros

2017 PINOT NOIR, Los Carneros

Cool maritime air of the Los Carneros region coupled with warm, sunny days yields this silky Pinot Noir. The Los Carneros AVA includes both the famous wine growing regions of Sonoma & Napa counties. Receiving its AVA status in 1983, Carneros area was the first wine region in California to be defined by its climate characteristics rather than political boundaries. Rich aromas of black cherry, blackberry and dried sage lead to notes of dark fruits with plush tannins, balanced acidity, and hints of smoky caramel from aging in French oak barrels.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Rich aromas of black cherry, blackberry and dried sage lead to notes of dark fruits with plush tannins, balanced acidity, and hints of smoky caramel from aging in French oak barrels.
Vineyard Notes
Los Carneros is the southernmost AVA in the Napa Valley, and is the only Napa County AVA that overlaps into Sonoma County. Its close proximity to the San Pablo Bay allows for much cooler climates compared to the rest of the valley, making it a perfect growing location for Burgundian varietals such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Winemaker Notes
Winter provided a record-breaking rainfall - a welcome end to the 4-years of drought. Bloom and fruit set in May occurred under ideal conditions. Summer was warm but the vines weathered the heat well and maturity moved along at a steady pace. The 2017 wine quality shows a lot of bright acidity and fresh varietal aromas in the white wines, and deep color, sweet fruit flavors. Looking like it will be another classic year! - Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this versatile wine with grilled pork chops, stuffed mushrooms with wild rice, or grilled summer vegetables.
