Artesa Reserve Carneros Pinot Noir 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

A refined expression of great Carneros Pinot Noir. This wine is beautifully balanced and subtle. Intertwined aromas of raspberry, cherry and red currant are forefront from start to finish. Seamlessly multi-layered with fruit and oak spices of clove, nutmeg and smoke that melt into a lingering berry and vanillin oak finish. The gentle tingle of acid keeps the berry fruits lively, will complement food and enable this wine to age gracefully.

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

Delicious drinkability is the hallmark of this Pinot Noir, which comes from the winery?s vineyard in the Carneros District. The wine is dry and silky, with complex flavors of berries, cherries and spices, brightened with brisk acidity.
