Domaine Carneros is best-known for its elegant sparkling wines. Its success is part winemaking skill and part the quality of its grapes. The latter is an important factor in its still wines, particularly this Pinot Noir. It rocks. With supple tannins, this wine shows an elegant texture. On the palate notes of spice and bright cherry dominate. It shows impressive length, with a long finish.
