95James Suckling

Crushed cherries, raspberries, cloves, rose petals and dried earth on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with sleek tannins. Juicy berry flavors lead to a fresh, precise finish.

94Jeb Dunnuck

...darker fruited, smoky nose that offers plenty of brambly herbs and earthy nuances...medium to full-bodied and has seamless texture as well as nicely integrated acidity.

92Wine Spectator

Rich and contoured, offering a lively mix of dried cherry, berry and savory spice notes supported by medium-grained tannins, with rooibos tea and leafy accents on the finish.


United States, California, Sonoma County, 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.
