2017 Limited Barrel Selection Pinot Noir

2017 Limited Barrel Selection

The 2017 edition of our Limited Barrel Selection is made up of the 7 best barrels in the cellar, which yielded just 177 cases of 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.

Tasting Notes

In this extraordinary wine, the signature characteristics one expects from the domaine are presented in classic style. The nose opens slowly at a leisurely pace with an array of savory scents including violets, plum, leather, turned earth and sassafras. Fruit profile presents more black fruits including red raspberry, baked cherry, and plum clafouti along with a hint of baking spice on the finish. Very fine, polished tannins, define the palate, with a touch of sweetness from the cast of artisan coopers, primarily Cadus, CaVin along with Remond.
