Bouchaine Estate Carneros Pinot Noir 2007
Our estate-grown Pinot Noirt comes from new plantings on our rolling hills in cool, foggy Carneros, Napa Valley. This is a Pinot with depth and power, grace and elegance. Winemaker Michael Richmond calls it, "a seductive wine with smoky overtones--definitely not a shrinking violet." Together with intense flavors of dark cherries, berries and roses, this wine presents a taste of the vibrant future of Bouchaine's Pinot Noirs.
External Reviews for Bouchaine Estate Carneros Pinot Noir
The multiple layers of flavors lead to a silky finish that lingers on the palate. Brightness of flavor from the acidity makes this a choice wine to pair with a variety of dishes such as pepper-crusted grilled salmon or pork tenderloin in a dried cherry relish.
WE 92pts. - Winemaker's Notes - The Bouchaine 2007 Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir was blended from a selection of the most dramatic estate wine lots to yield the most expressive wine possible. These are among the southernmost plantings in the Napa Valley and encompass the highest landmark terraces in the Carneros. The vineyard reaps the full benefit of the region s defining marine influence, which, along with limited irrigation water, serves to limit crop size, retain bright fruit acidity, and assure early ripening making the most well behaved and richly flavored wines. The 2007 vintage was marked by fears of drought conditions early in the season, but prudent watering from our partially-filled ponds allowed for full fruit development while limiting crop yields.
