Teachworth Winery Los Carneros Pinot Noir 2018, Napa Valley, California
Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim and medium intensity.
Strong nose of black currants, cooked raspberries, cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, dark chocolates, celery, coffee, peppercorn, herbs, tobacco leaf and spices.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity and very gentle.
Dry on the palate with blueberries, cherries, red currants, oak, smoke, light vegetables, pencil lead, tobacco, peppercorn, coffee, herbs and light wet leaves.
Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and red chili powder.
This is an impressive Pinot Noir from Napa Valley. Showing nice complexity with a soft mouthfeel. Gentle and elegant.
Nicely balanced and still young, although very enjoyable right now. A little hot right now and I'd love to try it again in 3 years.
I let it open in the glass, and after 15 minutes it came to itself. I enjoyed the tangy spicy finish.
Nice to sip on all by itself or with food. I paired it with Brie cheese and crackers.
Aged for 11 months in neutral French Oak barrels. A small production of only 175 cases.
14.75% alcohol by volume.

Cherry with a ruby color. Earthy and old world tasting. Smells like a wet morning in the woods, mushroomy. Delicious finish. Loved it. Drank in the virtual Petit Phillipe Lioco tasting on May 29, 2020 — 2 hours ago
Nose has oxidized red apple, warm ginger, butter croissant, light apple cider notes and toasted hazelnut.
Palate has buttered lemon mousse, green apple peel, pear flesh, dried ginger, crushed granite and faint carmel, warmed.
A very nice bottle, but not the same level as our last, a stunning 2005. — 12 days ago
First 2019 Sonoma coast Rose of the season. Lovely, focused yet light Pinot noir rose. Light pink color...tart cherry and watermelon nose. Nice weight and balanced acid/fruit. Round, ripe, just enough sweetness, but with enough complexity to rise above flabbiness or boredom. Rose can be boring... but not this one! — 19 days ago
Ok ok - not Kosta Brown, but for a $20/btl you will be hard-pressed (no pun) to find a better value. Great, solid structure & bright red berry flavors. A nice, even long finish - probably more than any other $20pinot. The best attribute of this NV wine is Ant Hill offers it in a 3.0Lit box! F-yeah! — 6 days ago
Nose of a jammy Santa Barbara Pinot noir and higher alcohol. Effervescent red berries glisten across the tongue upon fresh corkage. Bright red and fruit forward. A crowd pleaser. I can’t get over how the wine continues to tease and tingle the top of your tongue even after a bit of patience on the bottle release. Fresh young texture like a Beaujolais, surprises me that this has some age at 2015 vintage. Young fruit and baking spices make this an easy pairer for foods. I found this as a steal at a retailer at $19 while I was out working the field. Bad girl, buying wine on the job. 😉🍷 — 6 days ago
