2019 Le Ciel Serein Pinot Noir

Hailing from our Le Ciel Serein vineyard and showcasing the expressive "Dijon 667" clone, this Pinot Noir is exceptionally vivid, silky and complex. We call it “Le Ciel Serein” and it just might be the most picturesque ranch in the Carneros AVA. This site was selected for its rolling hills, diverse exposure, and exceptional soils. This edition offers notes of cherries, black raspberry, cedar, and saddle leather.

Tasting Notes

There is a vibrant juiciness that is characteristic of the energy of this 2019 vintage. With time in the glass, the nose opens up to bergamot, thyme, cola, and pomegranate. The palate offers cherries, black raspberry, cedar, and saddle leather riding long through the finish. The final blend enjoyed fifteen months of barrel age (46% new) from our favorite French coopers.

Food Pairings

Our winemaker recommends enjoying this well balanced wine with roasted beets & goat cheese, or the Pinot pairing classic - a rack of lamb dressed with orange glaze.
