2015 Estate Brut Cuvée: Our Estate Brut is a small cuvée comprised only of grapes grown in our own vineyards. The wine was aged a minimum of three years in our cellar. We love this wine now, but know it has exceptional further aging potential. Richness and complexity begin on the nose, with bounding aromas of green apple, crème brûlée, and orange blossom. The palate is dense and full, revealing juicy pear, honey dew melon and lemon zest, with a savory underpinning that melds into the long finish. Vividly capturing the character of our Estate vineyards, here’s another great example of low-yield, exceptional harvest that 2015 gave us. This wine is exceptional now and perfect for aging.
2016 Brut Rosé: 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.
2018 Tula Vista Chardonnay: In the glass this single vineyard Chardonnay shows a pale straw color tinged with an emerald rim. The exotic nose features lemongrass, wet stone, butterscotch, and pine needle. The palate offers unexpected richness, and viscosity with beautiful pit fruit, baked pear, and notes of honey. The finish is long and layered with a balanced tension in harmony with the mouth- watering acidity. Proper cellar aging, if you can resist opening, will be rewarded in 2-3 years.
2017 Estate Pinot Noir: The 2017 edition of our Estate Pinot Noir packs a full range of red and darker berry flavors. Beginning with the nose one encounters bright pomegranate and poached cherry notes along with hints of sassafras and freshly turned earth. Ten months of barrel age lends a sweetness that balances the supple tannin from this exceptional vintage producing an intense full bodied Pinot Noir. Of particular note in this edition is the juicy and sweet fruited entry upon the palate, backed up by delicate spice notes that lead to a lengthy, warming finish. The hallmark of Domaine Carneros Pinot Noir is the texture, and this wine delivers with a supple and silky mouth-feel.
