Snoothrank of 2 is pretty harsh. This wine is alright - 3 from me! Perfectly decent, fruity, soft pinot. Not a lot of character - earth or anything, but very drinkable.

    Wine Tasting NotesFrom a classic vintage, this shows an impressive blend of black and red fruit, with an elegant mouth feel supported by decent acidity. While full bodied and complex, this Pinot Noir still excels at subtlety, making it one of the most complementary food wines in our portfolio. Our favorite Pinot Noir dish pan-seared duck breast with green peppercorn sauce.

    The grapes for this Pinot Noir come from Trinchero’s South Napa estate vineyard in the rolling hillsides of the San Pablo Bay. This 100-acre marine-influenced property is subject to the cooling breezes and fog similar to the Carneros region which lies just to the west. This microclimate is considered to be ideal for Pinot Noir. Approximately 40 acres have been planted to an assortment of different Pinot Noir clones--a total of ten separate blocks which are individually picked and vinified. Extensive seed removal is incorporated into the fermentation process, eliminating biting tannins and bringing out ripe fruit flavors. Aged just 4 months in oak, this lush textured Pinot shows black cherry, mocha, spice and vanilla flavors. An amazing value.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Vineyard InformationOur South Napa estate vineyard in the rolling hillsides of the San Pablo Bay is the source for our 2006 Pinot Noir. This 100-acre marine-influenced property is subject to the cooling breezes and fog similar to the Carneros region which lies just to the west. This microclimate is considered to be ideal for the Burgundian varieties Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Approximately 40 acres have been planted to an assortment of different Pinot Noir clones--a total of ten separate blocks which are individually picked and vinified.WinemakingFor Pinot Noir, extensive seed removal is incorporated into the cap management process as well as oxidative rackings during the oak aging period. This allows the tannins to polymerize more fully, creating larger, softer tannins out of smaller, more aggressive and angular ones. It also helps release the aromatic berry character inherent in the grapes.Tasting NotesExpect ripe, open flavors on the palate with strawberries, sandalwood, cola and earth. The nose is focused and bright, the texture is soft and generous and the finish is long and complete. This luscious Pinot Noir balances generous ripe black cherry and mocha aromas with cedar, spice and vanilla. Sleek and supple on the palate, the wine is brimming with bright bing cherry and spice with a hint of mint.Wine Information Barrel Aging: 4 months in oak Alcohol: 13.3% TA: .55g/100ml Cases: 22,000 Release Date: August 2007
