What do you get when you cross a cool climate with lots of sun and meticulously tended vines? A serendipitous situation that results in a spectacularly sippable wine. Buena Vista Carneros Pinot Noir, to be more specific.
Buena Vista Carneros Pinot Noir is made with grapes grown in the Carneros region, the area that spans the distance between the Napa & Sonoma Valleys. The grapes were handpicked at night to preserve the fruit's character, then hand sorted to ensure only the very best of the lot were used in the winemaking. After fermentation, the wine is aged for eight months in 33% new French oak barrels, with the remaining wine aged in one to two year old barrels.
This Pinot Noir is bright with Bing cherry, allspice and earthy elements. Blackberry & plum fruit flavors give way to undertones of coffee and clove and a long, supple finish. Enjoy a glass with a stew made with our All Natural Stew Meat. And while you're at it, enjoy our price of $9.99* a bottle—and excellent price for a wine with this pedigree.
*Alcohol availability & price may vary due to state laws, taxes, shipment fees & other such stuff.
