Saintsbury Pinot Noir Carneros
92 Points - James Suckling
"A fresh, medium-bodied pinot noir. Fruity and floral with notes of currants and fresh berries. Some dark wood. Mellow on the mouth with a clean finish. Firm and linear, too. Drink now."
Notes from the Winemaker
Pretty but concentrated aromas of rose petal, dark cherries, cocoa, anise and cardamom. Sweet cherry and plum entry with a zesty mid palate reminiscent of baking spices, leading into an elegant, lingering finish. Suggested Pairings: The richness of this wine pairs well with meats such as lamb, duck, and stewed curries, as well as artisanal cheeses and wild mushrooms.
