92Stephen Tanzer

Deep, soil-driven aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, chocolate, mocha and wild herbs. Dense, sweet, tangy and deep, with very ripe raspberry and chocolate flavors that come across as chewy and serious. Finishes with substantial dusty but sweet tannins and subtly building perfume.

92Wine Enthusiast

Marked by silky elegance and an austere architecture... Aeration brings the wine to life with a burst of red cherries and currants.

90Wine Spectator

Well-proportioned, with complex aromas of dried currant and berry...elegant yet firm, presenting a mix of anise, spice, cedar and floral notes. Most impressive on the finish, where the flavors persist.


United States, California, Napa Valley, Carneros

Carneros AVA, also known as Los Carneros, is at the southern end of the Napa and Sonoma Valleys at the top of the San Francisco Bay. The 8,000 vineyard acres are mostly planted to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, both of which thrive in the district’s cool, marine climate. Carneros became an AVA in 1983 and it has attracted foreign wine companies along with local producers. It has been especially appealing to European producers of sparkling wines including the giant Spanish cava producers Codorniu and Frexinet, and the French Champagne house Taittinger. Codorniu in Carneros is called Artesa, and Frexinet’s Carneros brand is Gloria Ferrer. Taittinger calls its Carneros winery Domaine Carneros. The European producers also make still wines in Carneros.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
