This is their Carneros. Super fruity black fruit. Sharp attack. But way more drinkable than I would have imagined.

Lots of red fruit but still leans to dry. Excellent with meats or just about anything else. Will be looking for the next platinum Pinot.

Weighty mouthfeel yet velvety and coats the palate. Starts off with strawberry flavors and quickly evolves showing generous notes of earl grey tea, orange peel, and rose petals. A long, acidic finish. Not a doubt in my mind this would finish strong in a blind tasting. Again a textbook example of its what’s in the bottle that matters not the label. Stock up while you can. There wasn’t much.

Dark, full bodied berries. Hints of apples and citrus, warm spices. Sharp on the tongue, but no alcohol sting- very pleasant. A great bottle a great price.
