2007 "Heritage Reserve" Pinot Noir
AmericanWinery.com is pleased to provide you with Winery-Direct information.
We set aside the finest barrel lots of our Carneros Pinot Noir for extended aging to create our “Heritage reserve” Pinot Noir. Each vineyard lot was chosen to express its own individuality in harmony with the final blend. The result is a limited bottling that is as rich and powerful as it is graceful and charming. A bouquet reminiscent of roses, warm cherries and Kirsch liqueur leads to rich flavors of black cherry, cranberry, and hints of lavender, all finishing with hints of tobacco and spicy new oak. This wine is perfect for the collector’s cellar, and will continue to age gracefully for up to 10 years.
