Lush aromatics highlighted by rhubarb, red cherry and ripe plum. Multiple layers of flavor including red fruit notes that grace the palate with broad, well balanced and complex traces of citrus in the back.
Floral, briary berry and cola aromatics with hints of limestone, tea and pepper. In the mouth these elements continue onto the entry with a rich, supple texture, an exacting balance and length through-out complexed by red cherries and plums supported by complementary ripe tannins, nice structure and a long savory finish. Unmistakably Pinot Noir from Carneros.
Punched cap fermented by hand in one ton lots to finish and then racked into French oak barrels where it was aged for 16 months.
Cola berries and black cherry with a red rose floral note and river stones aromatics. Spicy with expansive red fruits on entry that reveals pomegranate and cher-ries. It is followed by a muscular structure through to the finish. It is well centered and powerful, bright and balanced.
2014 Carneros Pinot Noir - Volume I - The long heralded Pinot Noir capitol of Carneros was the grape source for Inaugural Release of The Lost Chapters and with Paul's deft hand, the wine says it all. Our 2014 Pinot Noir’s medium ruby color borders on light raspberry and hints to the elegance of what’s to come. Sweet cherries with a note of tobacco and spice on the nose lead to a lush palate with balanced acidity and restrained tannins that frame flavors reminiscent of red cherries and raspberries. The exceptionally long and layered finish is interwoven with memories of the bright fruit and structure of the palate and seems to linger on its own forever. A must with grilled salmon and a perfect choice with lamb as you like it.
