Artesa Pinot Noir 2006
A bright Pinot Noir filled with aromas and flavors of cherry, raspberry and red currant. This wine is beautifully subtle and multi-layered with hints of nutmeg, cinnamon, leather, cedar chest, vanilla and California Bay Tree. Wonderful structure gives this wine weight and silky power from start to finish. Combining both elegance and boldness this wine is wonderful straight out of the bottle while having the concentration and complexity to age. At release, this wine has a brooding depth that will open up over the next 5 years to reveal a stupendous wine. This wine will please for decades.

Wine Tasting NotesAn exuberant expression of great Carneros Pinot Noir. Refined and elegant aromas of raspberry, cherry and red currant. This wine is beautifully subtle and multi-layered with oak spices of clove, all spice and smoke. Good structure gives this wine a mid-palate weight and silky sensation from start to finish. A perfectly balanced Pinot with just a gentle tingle of acid which keeps the berry fruit lively.
