In the mouth, the wine shows supple textures, rich apple and lemon flavors with a touch of oak spice on a lush yet vibrant finish. Food Affinities:

This small section of Northern California is situated at the base of both the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Carneros has made its reputation with its Pinot Noirs, which are filled with strawberry, cherry, spice, and chocolate, and are very rich and seductive. Chardonnay is also excellent, very buttery but not too fat.
