Artesa Pinot Noir California 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

A dark and exuberant expression of great Carneros Pinot Noir with refined and elegant aromas of cherry, red currant, chocolate and tobacco leaf. Multi-layered and complex fruit flavors are enhanced by oak spice nuances of clove, allspice and smoke. Excellent structure gives the wine weight and a silky mouth feel while it remains very well balanced. A gentle tingle of acid keeps the fruit lively on the palate from start to finish. Although excellent now, this rich and concentrated Pinot Noir has the depth and complexity to benefit from additional time in the bottle.

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

Cherry, tobacco, and notes of spice. Short to medium length on finish. Easy to drink pinot noir.
