Gold Medal - 91 Points - San Diego International Wine Competition! Domaine Carneros Estate 2012The 2012 edition of our Estate Pinot noir packs a full range of flavors. Beginning with the nose one encounters black raspberry, cherry, and plum along with savory notes of loamy earth, cola, and sandal wood. 10 months of barrel age lends a sweetness that balances the supple tannin from this exceptional vintage producing an intense full bodied Pinot noir. The hallmark of Domaine Carneros Pinot Noir is the texture and this wine delivers with a supple and silky mouth-feel guaranteed to please.
