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-nine 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.
