Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir Santa Ynez Valley Mt. Carmel 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Plum and fresh strawberry aromas delight the nose, while the elegant red cherry<br/>flavours are supplemented by those of spice and fine earth. This is a real joy,<br/>particularly alongside some calf's liver and bacon.
