A perfumed nose of rose petals, dark cherry, rhubarb and wild strawberry with white pepper and cinnamon spice notes. Lovely fresh rose, cherry, plum and cola on the palate with hints of five spice and cardamom. Smooth, silky tannins with a long succulent finish.

Appellation: Carneros

Clones: Dijon 115, 667 and 777, Swan, Pommard

VINTAGE

An ideal season - no frosts, a mild spring and summer followed by a tranquil fall. A winemaker's vintage!

Harvest Dates: September 10 - October 9

WINEMAKING

After night harvesting, the pinot noir arrives at Saintsbury within the hour of pick. The clusters are first sorted before moving to the destemmer. Partially crushed fruit is then transferred into open-top tanks for fermentation.

Aging: 8 months in 15% new French oak barrels
