2017 "The Famous Gate" Pinot Noir: The “Famous Gate” pays homage to our deep commitment to Pinot Noir. For the past 25 years, we’ve carefully cultivated 12 separate clonal selections in a wide variety of soils, providing a complex range of Pinot Noir expressions. Our passion for Pinot Noir and dedication to artisan winemaking methods make the Famous Gate a wine worth seeking.
2017 Avant-Garde Pinot Noir: Domaine Carneros Avant-Garde Pinot Noir features a delicate note of rose petal followed by sweet cherries, pomegranate, warm oak, and baking spice. It was created to be the vanguard of the vintage, heralding the distinctive bright berry qualities of the Carneros Region. The fruit for this wine is sourced from all five Domaine Carneros vineyards in the rolling hills of Carneros.
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.
