Single Barrel Abbassi Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

A steal at $24. Very good. Well balanced. Black cherry, black raspberry, and green pepper on the palate. This is a medium to full body pinot. Wish I bough more.than 2! — 4 days ago

Heirloom Grace Benoist Ranch Pinot Noir 2014

This is the last one of these. It's been 4 years since opening the last one as I thought this could use some time. Man, the time has really done this one well. I am actually a fan of this producer with regard to their budget pinot. 20 bucks and you get a good crowd-pleaser. Although I don't know if I would buy this since my palate has changed since purchasing these, I have to respect this for being a great higher end pinot that does showcase Carneros pinot very well. Still has a lot of robust, sweet raspberry fruit almost like a raspberry tea Graham cracker. A very rounded front. Just about as full-bodied as traditional Pinot gets. A little bit of mint, herbs. Finishes with very good acidity but the acidic nature is starting to fade. This was consumed all by itself, so it actually was a very nice characteristic as it allowed the raspberry to fade out a bit and not end so abruptly. I wouldn't trust this one to really drink so well three or four years from now. But it is really good now! — 24 days ago

Sure, oak is prominent here, but to me it’s more of a decoy for the lovely fresh stone fruit core and enhances the nuances of cantaloupe, lime, honeysuckle, and light citrus. Acidity is round yet firm, good enough to give the richly textured palate a lift.
I usually prefer more saline and mineral, but this is undeniably well made and delicious. And quite elegant.

Carneros Estate Pinot Noir 2013

Ruby color, not much of an odor or distinctive notes.. Very balanced pinot, good body with a slight pinch of fruit at the end that is uplifting with minimal if any aftertaste. Side note: I actually got this 2013 vintage from a local liquor store on closeout. This place is mostly a scotch forward store near foxborough, ma. They need room and put wines on clearance. I think I walked away paying 15 for this bottle...drinks like 30 bucks. Cheers — 2 days ago

Carneros Pinot Noir

Pinot that can stand up to bigger meals-- great with steak, lamb, even calamari. Tropical fruit then a bit of spice. Ripe cherries. A little chewy — 8 hours ago

A kind of smokey, spicy cherry flavor. Dry to begin with, smooth finish. Easy to drink alone or with a meal. — a day ago
