Carneros Della Notte Vineyards Pinot Noir Carneros 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

A full bouquet of honey and ripe fruits with a hint of Honeysuckle blossom, that opens on the palate to a rich supple flavors of ripe plum and black cherry. The 2005 ECLIPSE late harvest Pinot Noir fills the palate with silky honey and ripe fruit flavors that lends to a soft luscious warming finish. This lovely wine is a perfect accompaniment to a simple cheese plate featuring mild flavors that allow this wine to “glow”.

This new producer is created in partnership by three men of diverse backgrounds and is producing ultra-premium pinot noir wines from three different clones and three different rootstocks. The grapes are harvested by hand and exclusively at night while the juice chemistry is more stable. The winery’s name reflects this practice and translates to "Carneros of the Night". Carneros della Notte is also the first producer to use a glow-in-the-dark wine label to further articulate the winery’s unique approach to pinot noir production. The premier releases are the Los Carneros Pinot Noir, a 100% Pinot Noir from the Carneros region of Napa and Sonoma Valleys, which retails at $48.00 per bottle, and the Napa Valley DIII Vineyard Pinot Noir, which is produced with grapes grown exclusively from David Harmon's Carneros-Napa Valley vineyard and is offered at $150.00 per bottle. Carneros della Notte’s founders are Dave Harmon, a former founder of wine.com and past chauffeur to Robert Mondavi and Winemaker Sal Godinez who has been a vintner in the Carneros area for more than twenty years and Darin Applebury, a United Airlines pilot.

Another knockout, if you are into dessert wines, try this one out. Not obnoxiously sweet and not going to make you drunk with the heat. Very tasty.

One of my favorite Bonnie Tyler songs (quite possibly the ONLY Bonnie Tyler song...) and now one of my favorite wines! This late harvest pinot noir is jokingly referred to as "Liquid Panty Remover" by owner Dave Harmon III, but I see where the nickname comes from. The wine is aromatically appealing, with notes of plum, wet leaves and maple syrup. The plum and maple components carry to the flavors and lead to a nice apple cinnamon flavor on the back end. After a few sips I feel like I just ate waffles with maple syrup and apple sauce - and that's not a bad thing! A really great dessert treat for all the ladies out there... and gentlemen, you might as well have a glass or two as well!

I'm just gonna say it: this wine smells JUST like maple leaves/maple syrup. BOOM! I said it. I could just leave at that, but it's also worth mentioning there is some good fruit and nuttiness as well that makes for a tasty dessert wine.
