2013 Saintsbury Pinot Noir Carneros

Winemaker's Notes:

In our Pinot Noir we are above all looking for those lots that show a balance of tannin and acid, fruit flavors that while rich, dark-red and complex, are not overblown or leaning toward the burnt jam style of Pinot you sometimes see. Our Carneros bottling delivers distinctive Pinot Noir character in a wine of power, grace and elegance.


Burghound 88 Points

An earthy and slightly somber nose features both red and dark currant aromas that are trimmed in spice and tea nuances. There is a lovely mouth feel to the refined middle weight flavors that possess good persistence and reasonably good depth. Note that this should be approachable young yet provide good aging potential if desired.
