94James Suckling

This is a complex and enticing pinot with strawberry, meat, foie-gras and leather undertones on the nose. Full body, round and silky tannins and a pretty finish.

94Jeb Dunnuck

A beautiful, rich, medium-bodied effort...offers lots of strawberry and blackberry fruits, hints of rose petals, spice, and earth, a seamless texture, and terrific overall balance.

92+ The Wine Advocate up opulent notes of cinnamon stick, cloves, oolong tea and Sichuan pepper over a core of kirsch, black raspberries and black cherry tart. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with firm, fine-grained tannins and lovely freshness, finishing long and mineral tinged.


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.
