Editorial Reviews for Lot 165 Napa Valley Los Carneros Pinot Noir
Low key and roast meaty on the nose with dense dark cherry fruit and an aromatic, rosewood top note, a little tarry. Delicious style of wine, still youthful and rambunctious, yet with succulent acids and dense, yet fresh dark cherry fruit backed with some Christmas spices. The finish shows admirably purity and lovely, ripe fruit tannins. A really well balanced and complete bottle. 90pts
Notes: Magenta center with a crimson rim. Aromas of crushed raspberries, strawberries, and violets populate the nose alongside hints of black cherry. On the palate, this wine soars with vibrant acidity and opulent bramble fruits. With both feet well in the new world, this lavish Pinot has great balance and superior structure. The fruit continues to evolve as this wine departs with a long finish of soft tannins and lingering berries. Cameron Confidential: This is yet another one of Sam's amazing finds. Sam Spencer, our winemaker, has connections with some of the best wineries around the globe. This wine, coming to us from a very famous vineyard in Carneros, uses single-vineyard designation, whole cluster fermentation, and François Frères cooperage (40% new). In the past, we would build new-world/old-world Pinot blends. This wine is 100% new-world style with killer fruit, bold structure, etc. This single-vineyard designated wine is not only our best Pinot to date, but it presents an exceptional deal at only S18.
