Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Stylistically one could describe this blend as a younger cousin to our Le Ciel Serein. The nose is a complex array offering nutmeg, fresh plum, sassafras and delicate oak. On the palate one encounters boysenberry, dried cranberry (dense and sweet with red fruit) along with a beam of bright cherry. The barrel profile features Sirugue 36 months and Cadus. This pair of coopers offer two of the most delicate profiles of barrel spice forming a perfect complement to this Pinot Noir from the heart of Carneros.
Vineyard Notes
The 2015 growing season was mild and modest just like the crop load as indicated above. It seems that the combination of a couple larger vintages along with the cumulative effect of the drought disinclined the vines toward productivity. The net result is a wine with pleasant concentration displaying lushness and density with a vibrant core of bright red fruits.
Food Pairing Notes
Exceptional with duck and wild game.
