2019 Domaine Carneros Estate

Domaine Carneros Pinot Noir begins in our six different Estate vineyards, which are certified by Fish Friendly Farming and located within four miles of the Château. We grow twenty different clones of Pinot Noir and each one contributes its unique flavor profile and personality to make this compelling blend which is truly a mosaic of our Carneros terroir.

Tasting Notes

The 2019 edition of our Estate Pinot Noir packs a range of delicious fruit and savory flavors. Beginning with the nose one encounters mandarin orange, strawberry, red raspberry, and other brambly fruits along with earl grey tea, sassafras, and mossy forest floor. Ten 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 Estate Pinot Noir, is the texture, and this wine delivers with a supple and silky mouth feel, and warming finish.
