Three pedigree Pinots express our Carneros terroir in distinctively delicious ways: ripe plum and spicy boysenberry in 2016 Le Ciel Serein; dark chocolate and baking spices in 2017 The Famous Gate; and silky red and darker berry flavors in 2016 Estate Pinot Noir.
2016 Le Ciel Serein Pinot Noir: A wine of great poise and balance featuring the vaunted "Dijon 667" clonal selection. The palate offers ripe plum, wild berries, delicate cigar spice, and carob nibs.
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.
2016 Estate Pinot Noir: This full bodied Pinot packs a full range of red and darker berry flavors and a vibrant acidity from beginning to end. The 2015 edition of our Estate Pinot Noir packs a full range of red and darker berry flavors. Beginning with the nose one encounters bright raspberry and cooked cherry notes along with hints of sassafras and freshly turned earth.
