2013 Adastra Vineyard Pinot Noir, Los Carneros

A beautiful garnet color and big dark cherry bouquet. Rich aromas of blueberry, currant, ripe cantaloupe and slate waft out of the glass; the wine is richly textured with firm structure and an amazing array of flavors ranging from blackberry and sweet spice to white chocolate, brown rice, clay and a whisper of caraway. The finish continues with lingering flavors of pure Bing cherry juice.

This beautiful Adastra Vineyard, Carneros Pinot is drinking soooo smoothly right now, it's rich and lush with beautiful cherry high notes and a long persistant finish. The extra few years of age have really accentuated it's personality. Enjoy with some cheese, a yummy dinner or just sip on its own. Feel free to lay down a few bottles for later sipping too; this wine was crafted to go the long haul. yum :)
