Saintsbury Carneros Pinot Noir 2017

Carneros, CA
90 pts. Wine Spectator
A great example of quality wine being crafted with the succulent grapes from the Carneros AVA. This is Pinot Noir-lover's Pinot! And at such a bargain price, you can't go wrong with this one!

WINEMAKER'S NOTES:
TASTING NOTES - Pretty but concentrated aromas of rose petal, dark cherries, cocoa, anise and cardamom.  Sweet cherry and plum entry with a zesty mid palate reminiscent of baking spices, leading into an elegant, lingering finish. Suggested Pairings: The richness of this wine pairs well with meats such as lamb, duck, and stewed curries, as well as artisanal cheeses and wild mushrooms.
 
VINEYARDS - When sourcing Pinot Noir fruit, we seek those Carneros vineyards that offer diversity in both aspect and clonal selection. The result is a complex and vibrant Pinot Noir most reflective of the Carneros region.
 
VINTAGE 2017 - A cold off-season with plentiful rainfall led into a warmer spring. Summer continued with warmer weather, leading to steady ripening through the end of the growing season.

WINEMAKING - After night harvesting, the Pinot Noir fruit arrives at Saintsbury within the hour of its pick. The clusters are sorted and put into small open-top fermentation for gentle punch down.
