Pinot Noir

2015 Domaine Carneros Estate

Domaine Carneros Pinot Noir begins in our four sustainably farmed Estate Vineyards, which are all located within four miles of the Château. We grow eleven 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. This full bodied Pinot packs a full range of red and darker berry flavors and a vibrant acidity from beginning to end.

The defining feature of the 2015 growing season was the weather during flowering. In April we had substantial fluctuations in temperature combined with occasional rainfall that resulted in compromised "berry set." That is to say, we saw a reduced number of grapes per individual cluster. The impact on the wine is substantial as we see the 2015s, across the board, displaying dark color, depth of fruit and a wonderful juicy quality.
