WA 91pts. - Winemaker Notes - Los Carneros Pinot is a subtly complex masterpiece. The 2007 offers brooding, earthy aromas of dark cherry and forest floor, with a touch of spice. Flavors continue with ripe, black plum, hints of coffee and cocoa surrounded by a soft, velvety texture that ends in a fleshy, long finish. Rated 90+
According to the Wine Advocate: The outstanding, well-made 2007 Pinot Noir Carneros primarily comes from Dijon clones. Its dark ruby color is accompanied by complex aromatics of spice box, plums, black cherries, and forest floor. This velvety-textured, medium to full-bodied Pinot possesses silky tannins, good fresh acids, and a vivacious, full-throttle style. Enjoy it over the next 4-5 years.
