The 2015 Carneros Pinot Noir was sourced from Beaulieu Vineyard Ranches No. 9, 8 and 5 in Carneros. It begins with aromas of stewed black cherries, red currants, baking spice, cedar and dried herb whcih all come together and leap from the glass. It has a rich, mouth coating texture, with a core of ripe berry and spice flavors which continue through the finish. Approachable now, and shoud also offer a short-term drinking window.
