2006 Napa County Pinot Noir, Wild Horse Valley
from Harrington Wines
AmericanWinery.com is pleased to provide you with Winery-Direct information.
The 2006 Wild Horse posits a powerful nose of dried cranberry, chocolate, roasted nuts, moss and lifted evergreen enveloped in a warm, spiced-rum blanket. round on the attack, with fresh but well integrated tannins, the wine moves into a mid-palate expressing the minerality of the rocky soils. Joining this mineral expression are fruit layers of raspberry and blueberry. These elements marry tightly and evolve into a dusty, wet slate finish.
- 750 ml (Standard Bottle): 221
The Wild Horse Valley appellation is located directly east of, and above the town of Napa, at an elevation of 1,400 feet. The higher elevation and the cool, lingering Carneros fog during the summer months make the Wild Horse Valley an ideal location for Pinot Noir. Thin, well-drained mountain soils, 25-year-old vines and unusually long hang times contribute to the development of bright, complex flavors.
