Through this wine, one can trace the history of pinot noir at Domaine Carneros. In 1992, we made our first two barrels and called it The Famous Gate. For the past twenty-five years, we have carefully cultivated three small blocks of the Swan selection. Each block is located at a different vineyard; two are in Napa, and one on the western, Sonoma side, of Carneros. All blocks were planted between 1998 and 1999.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This 2019 vintage of the Famous Gate Pinot Noir opens with enticing aromas of cooked cherries, red currant, cranberry, and cedar with a top note of mint. On the palate, there is sweet Bing cherry, black tea, sassafras, and Asian spice.
Production Notes
In this iteration, there are three supporting characters - the iconic “Swan” clone is complimented by “Dijon 115” and “Hanzell”, to create the highest expression of our estate grown Carneros terrior. This wine was aged in barrel (51% new) for 16 months, which lends supple tannins and warm savory spice. While poised and delicious to drink now, the bright acidity and persistence of the palate provide evidence for graceful aging.
Food Pairing Notes
We recommend pairing this exquisite wine with equally interesting dishes such as Moroccan lamb tagine with orange and ras el hanout, or fig and prosciutto pizza with caramelized onions.
