Pinot Noir

2016 Limited Barrel Selection

The 2016 edition of our Limited Barrel Selection is made up of the 7 best barrels in the cellar, which yielded just 171 cases of this very special wine. Perfect ripeness, integration and balance come together with French oak barrel aging to produce a wine with magnificent presence and gravitas - along with grace and suppleness which are hallmarks of Domaine Carneros Pinot Noir.

This pure expression of our Carneros estate beckons enjoyment now or can be cellared for an additional eight-plus years to further its complexity. 2,052 sequentially numbered bottles are available only at the winery.

Stylistically, this wine continues what has been established in our classic Carneros blend, The Famous Gate. It is a careful assembly of two key types of Pinot noir, the Hanzell selection (70%), and a touch of Dijon 115 (30%).
