Spot-on Carneros Pinot: That maraschino cherry thing, candied rose, caramel chew and bit of anise. Jewelry-ruby in hue, salty black olive too. Palate is juicy and almost too-, almost shamefully easy to drink. But then Carneros is about polish, really, a different kind of cool - playing it straight, quiet confidence, etc. This one could use a touch more acid, for me, but with body this nicely medium-lean, and juicy cranberry-kissed-by-mintlime flavor edged with the right amount of nutmeg, I can get over it.

Much more depth and structure than I've come to expect from Carneros Pinot Noir

Rose petals, cola and smoke on the nose. Thin palate of pomegranate and orange peel.

At Scopa in Healdsburg. A little sweet at first. Cherries, medium weight, good with food.

Candy.

Would never order again.

Just saying.

Very light but very nice. Fruit forward with low oak and low tannins.
