Domaine Chandon Pinot Noir Carneros 2008

Winemaker's 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.

Domaine Chandon:
Domaine Chandon is one of the most recommended wineries in the Napa Valley, and the only one with its own 4-star restaurant. The winery established its reputation with sparkling wines, and in 1989, the winery began crafting still wines from the classic Champagne varietals Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier.

Fruity and spicy. Medium-long finish. Would definitely buy again.

Ruby in color, the 2008 Pinot Noir is a ripe vintage with broad, dark flavors. Dark cherry, Chinese five spice with lasting nutmeg create an fresh, inviting style that is enhanced by a rich mid palate. Oak is well integrated and creamy tannins are structured by a mild pepper finish.

Bright fruits greet the nose with fresh plum, raspberry, boysenberry and strawberry jam. Deliciously fresh and juicy flavors of cranberry and pomegranate are balanced by roasted aromas of cola nut and hints of bay laurel. Pinot Meunier as a varietal offers earthiness to sparkling wines and that character is revealed in the still wine as notes of soubois. - Winery ** Only 4 in Stock **

Winemaker Notes - Expansive aromas of lavender, plum, and red cherry escape from the glass of this medium-ruby colored wine with hints of nutmeg and minerality playing a supporting role. Luscious flavors of cherry, raspberry and boysenberry are immediately evident, while subtle earthiness, bramble and an appealing caramel characteristic develops in the finish. A well-balanced and versatile wine, our Pinot Meunier may be enjoyed with a variety of foods.
