Domaine Carneros Pinot Noir Carneros Avant Garde 2008
Domaine Carneros was established in 1987, a joint venture between Champagne Taittinger and Kobrand Corporation - one of the foremost players in the U.S wine industry. This impressive venture was a fulfilment of Claude Taittinger's dream after he visited the Carneros region and realised its potential to produce world class sparkling and still Pinot Noir wines. All the wines from Domaine Carneros are made from 100% Carneros fruit. When founding Domaine Carneros, the intent was to focus specifically on sparkling wines. However the Pinot Noir fruit produced on the Domaine Carneros estate vineyards was of such high quality that a still wine was produced. 1992 saw the inaugural vintage of the highly acclaimed Famous Gate Pinot Noir. The Domaine Carneros Avant Garde Pinot Noir is an extremely aromatic wine, with dominant fruit notes of black cherry, cranberry and raspberry accented with exotic spices and hints of toasty oak and orange peel. It is fresh and lively on the palate, with a delicacy and balance that invites pairing with simply prepared dishes like grilled or braised salmon, chicken, veal or pork. The wine will also enhance the vibrant flavors of California and Mediterranean cuisine.
