Schug Carneros Pinot Noir 2017 - 375ml
This classic Carneros region Pinot Noir offers a wide range of flavors and aromas, in the tradition of the finest red Burgundies of France. “Clonal diversity” is achieved by carefully blending several vineyard lots, each retaining its own unique clonal signature in the blend. The result is a complex wine with a rich bouquet of cherries, berries and hints of spicy new oak. It has flavors reminiscent of black cherry, currant and strawberry, followed by a rich, spicy texture and a long silky finish.
This wine pairs nicely with lamb, duck, even grilled fish, and will improve with additional cellaring for 2 to 5 years.

Tangy citrus and pomegranate combine for a bright, fresh experience built around focused acidity in this appellation wine. Gravelly texture gives it a complexity that impresses and lengthens the finish.

This has attractive fresh flowers and blueberries, as well as cherries and earthy, black-tea notes. The palate houses open-knit and approachable tannins that deliver a bold build of fleshy tannin.
