2020 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 2020 edition of our Estate Pinot noir packs a range of delicious fruit and savory flavors. Beginning with the nose one encounters black cherry, leather, tree bark, and cherry cola. The palate delivers vibrant red fruits including cranberry and raspberry intertwined with silky creamy texture. There is an additional touch of spice and forest floor notes on the finish. 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, as noted above, delivers with a supple, rich mouthfeel, and warming finish.
