Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2015 Famous Gate Pinot Noir opens with enticing aromas of anise, savory herbs, black tea, and hot brick. On the palate, we find sweet cherry and cocoa powder enriched by layers of pomegranate, grilled fig, and a wisp of cigar smoke. With its silky texture and mouthwatering acidity, this wine invites enjoyment now and promises further depth and complexity with added cellaring. Enjoy our finest expression of authentic estate grown Carneros terroir.
Vineyard Notes
Fermentation took place in small open vats, and the “caps” punched down three times daily. Our exhaustive barrel stave selection and aging program is custom tailored by fine Burgundian coopers including Rousseau, Francois-Frères, and Cadus which lends supple tannins and warm savory spice. The wine was aged in barrel for 15 months, and the final blend was racked once before bottling without fining or filtration.
