Rich & spicy with a long silky finish

Share this page:

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.

Walter Schug was intimately familiar with the Carneros region, and its potential as world-class Pinot Noir country, long before he staked his reputation on it. In the 1960’s he worked with Carneros grapegrowers as Gallo’s Head of Grower Relations. In the 1970’s and 1980’s he pro- duced wine from Carneros as winemaker at Joseph Phelps Vineyards. In 1983, Walter’s commit- ment to the young region’s potential was fully demonstrated when he left Phelps to pursue his own vision of Pinot Noir, using Carneros as the foundation for his own brand.
