Colors of Carneros
When we selected our small parcel in the heart of Carneros 33 years ago, we knew it was destined to produce great wines. Our 2014 Estate Brut Cuvée, 2016 Estate Pinot Noir and 2016 Brut Rosé embody the depth and breadth of our six estate vineyards translated through masterful winemaking and presented in our signature blue box.
This gift features our...
2014 Estate Brut Sparkling: Our Estate Brut is a small cuvée comprised only of grapes grown in our own vineyards. Enticing sip after sip, beautiful aromas of fresh spring flowers, lime zest, pear, and pie crust open on the nose. Full flavors of pear, Queen Anne cherry, and honey dew melon dance among tiny bubbles leading to a rounded palate and long finishThe wine was aged a full three plus years in our cellar. We love this wine now, but know it has exceptional further aging potential.
2016 Estate Pinot Noir: Domaine Carneros Pinot Noir begins in our four sustainably farmed Estate Vineyards, which are all located within four miles of the Château. We grow eleven different clones of Pinot Noir and each one contributes its unique flavor profile and personality to make this compelling blend which is truly a mosaic of our Carneros terroir. This full bodied Pinot packs a full range of red and darker berry flavors and a vibrant acidity from beginning to end.
2016 Brut Rosé Sparkling: A favorite among our enthusiasts, this wine expresses great balance while emphasizing fruity and floral characteristics. On the nose, the 2016 vintage welcomes the senses with aromas of watermelon, red roses, apricot, and toasted macadamia nuts. Flavors of peaches, mandarin, and pink grapefruit evoke the bliss of a perfect summer day through the long, silky finish.
