Poundstone Pinot Noir Las Amigas Vineyard Carneros 2018
Pinot Noir | US
Single vineyard, Cali-pinot from the cool reaches of Los Carneros…for $15?!?! How? Never you mind… that’s what we do! Tasty and bold, this is a big pinot for a microscopically tiny price!
The wine abounds with that classic Carneros juiciness, a touch of sun-scorched clay, cranberry and raspberry, sarsaparilla, and dusty, chocolatey whiffs of new oak. The wine is plush, spicy, and just begging to fill up your glass. 40% new French oak for 10 months grants the wine an opulent California style, but the Las Amigas vineyard adds the nuance.
Five different clones of pinot noir (115, Pommard, 777, 459, and Calera) were planted on two acres each at the Las Amigas vineyard on the southern edge of the Los Carneros AVA. These grapes are carefully raised, vinified, and aged separately, then blended artfully together to create this classic Carneros pinot noir. Balancing freshness with ripeness, oak-driven elegance, and terroir-focused purity – this is the perfect deal for any lover of Cali-pinot. At this price, you should probably get six or more…trust us, these bottles have a tendency to disappear quickly! Did we mention 66% OFF?! Pinot Madness in the best possible way! While it lasts!
