External Reviews for Carpe Diem Pinot Noir Firepeak Vineyard Edna Valley
Carpe Diem is the product of a classic Burgundian winemaking style using Pinot Noir clones from the Pommard and Dijon regions. Firepeak Vineyard's unique location at the foot of an extinct volcanic peak has a soil composition that is a mixture of marine sediment, clay and volcanic deposits.
Carpe Diem wines are based on the elegant and refined Burgundy winemaking style which reflects the uniqueness of their soil and varietal characters. The percentages of new oak used in the treatment of the wine are conservative using less than 50% to allow for the varietal characteristics to be the main focus.
Wine Tasting NotesThe Carpe Diem Burgundian Pinot Noir is elegant and refined with cherry and red fruit flavors complimented by a light smokiness and spice. The dense ruby color is as bold as the cherry and spice bouquet. True to the Burgundian style and to the varietal, the wine has an earthiness to it that graduates into bright and bold red fruits. This wine continues to unfold until the smooth finish.
