2012 By George Pinot Noir
The second vintage of this local favorite! It is blend of select barrels from the Carneros sites we prefer for our Vineyard Series bottlings - and again, "By George", we think it's fabulous.
The wine celebrates two original inspirations here at Saintsbury: the Los Carneros AVA (established in 1983) and George E. B. Saintsbury (1845 - 1933), an English man of letters most famous for his "Notes on a Cellarbook". This is a winery exclusive made available only here or when you visit us at Saintsbury.
The blend for 2012 By George Carneros Pinot Noir:
Stanly Ranch 33%
Brown Ranch 67%
The 2012 By George has the fresh notes we expect form Stanly Ranch Pinot Noir - bright cherry and boysenberry, but with the deeper body we love from Brown Ranch Pinot Noir. The palate offers black cherry and spice with rich texture. The wine finishes brightly making it a perfect choice for any occasion!
