I've always preferred Pinot from Santa Barbara or the Santa Lucia Highlands, but Carneros has started to find its groove. This Pinot has more of a cinnamon spice as opposed to the smoky plum flavors of the former. A bit of earth. Good structure and complexity for a Pinot under $25. I will start trying some more Pinot's from the Carneros region. Will buy again.

WS 90pts. - According to the Wine Spectator: Offers good richness, density and complexity of flavors, which are layered and built around wild berry, huckleberry, fresh earth and floral scents. Full-bodied, ending with a long, persistent finish. Drink now through 2015. 13,500 cases made. Winemaker Notes - While Domaine Chandon is best known as one of America's top sparkling wine houses, we also produce limited quantities of still wines from estate grown vineyards. We craft these wines by drawing on our experience with the traditional champagne varieties and by showcasing select parcels from our Carneros ranch, where we were among the pioneering growers of this appellation. The Carneros terrain is of well-drained rolling hills and a cool climate due to the influence of nearby San Pablo Bay. This is perfect Pinot Noir country from which Domaine Chandon has been crafting small quantities of this varietal since 1996. As one of the most challenging yet rewarding grape varieties...

This winery's Pinots rarely rise to the top, but are almost always soundly made, very good wines, with extra points for complexity. The '05 is directly on par with previous vintages, a silky, dry wine showing rich flavors of cherries, cola, pomegranates and spices. It's the kind of Pinot that pairs well with foods without taking center stage.

Plum red with cherry hues. The aroma reveals layers of blackberry, plum and toffee with notes of truffle and cherry cola. The wine is very silky, with rich flavors of plum and blueberry and accents of clove and white pepper. It has a plush, lingering finish.

Medium red. Reduced aromas of smoked meat, earthy red fruits and spices. Silky, ripe and harmonious, with warm flavors of sweet red berries and cola. An expansive, rather full-blown pinot that could use a bit more precision and verve. Tannins are smooth, but the finish shows strong oakiness and a bit of alcoholic heat.

Soft-textured, with pretty cream and toasty oak flavors along with ripe cherry- and berry-laced fruit that has attractive earthy, mineral tones. Drink now through 2006.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The Carneros Pinot Noir offers enticing aromas of black cherry, juniper berries, black currants, anise and cinnamon spice. Black cherry and red raspberry flavors dominate the palate with an underlying flinty mineral charm for which the Carneros region is known. The texture is framed by well-developed tannins and balanced acidity, and a lingering finish of dried cherries contribute to the wine's overall complexity.
