2016 Mahoney Vineyards Estate Pinot Noir
This sumptuous Pinot Noir is comprised of up to 40 lots of Pinot Noir from our two estate vineyards: the Mahoney Ranch vineyard in the Napa side of the Carneros, and the Las Brisas vineyard in the Sonoma side of Carneros. Showcasing seven distinct Pinot Noir clonal selections from diverse micro-climates and soils within our vineyards, this wine is the benchmark by which Carneros Pinots should be measured.
The 2016 vintage Estate Pinot has a more pronounced French oak presence that gives this wine a very supple/elegant mouthfeel. The dark fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry combine with these earthy/spicy notes to deliver a very delicious Pinot Noir that fills the palate from molar to molar.
