The 2016 ZD Wines Carneros Pinot Noir showcases ideal growing conditions in the Napa Valley. A mild summer allowed the grapes to mature steadily, which lead to a richness and delicate balance between the aromas and flavors of this classic wine. This vintage is a true gift from Mother Nature.
The grapes are certified organic from the Napa Carneros region. The fruit was hand harvested and fermented in small open top stainless steel tanks. Hand punch-downs every 6 hours ensured gentle extraction of color and tannin. This wine spent 10 months of aging in 100% French Oak barrels, adding extra depth to an already stunning wine.
With a beautiful dark ruby color, the Pinot Noir has aromas of ripe strawberries and briary black cherry, mingling with a hint of vanilla, cedar, and rhubarb. The subtle oak nuances integrate perfectly with bright fruit, balanced acidity, and silky tannins.
