Artesa Estate Reserve Pinot Noir Carneros 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Delicate aromas of raspberry, cherry and strawberry set the tone for this beautiful Estate grown Pinot Noir. The flavors are carried through on the palate accompanied by bright acidity giving the wine superb balance on the palate. There is a hint of classic Carneros rose petals and violets lending a nice floral component. The oak is subtle with a light toasty flavor behind the forward fruit. The 2014 vintage is one of great complexity and elegance that amazes the senses and continues to evolve in the glass.

Artesa is Napa's newest, most exciting winery. Our architecturally-acclaimed facility opened as Codorniu Napa in 1991, dedicated solely to méthode champenoise sparkling wine production. But in 1997, with the arrival of a world-class winemaker and a $10 million conversion, the winery shifted focus dramatically. Artesa was born with the inaugural release of ultra-premium still wines in September 1999. Artesa (ahr TESS uh) means "craftsman" and connotes "handcrafted" in Catalan, language of Barcelona and our owner, Codorníu, one of the world's largest and oldest wineries. The Codorníu Group actually consists of eight spectacular wineries whose wines are enjoyed daily in over 100 countries around the world. So, while we are Napa's newest, our heritage is rich. We share five centuries of history with 15 generations of a remarkable winemaking family. Read less

Spiced red currant and raspberry aromas with ripe cherry and and cool floral elegance on the nose. Bright and firm fruit coming through on the palate with zesty acidity and tart focused cherry and cranberry fruit, a hint of medicine and good herbal notes of red licorice and more plum and blossom coming through towards the finish with baking spice and a bit of earth.

Soft and silky on the entry, the elegant red berry flavors expand on the palate and persist in the delicate mouthfeel. A touch of sweet oak broadens the mid palate while fine tannins and supple acidity extends the length.
