2010 Reserve Pinot Noir, Carneros Estate, Napa Valley
Elegant, graceful and balanced
Clos Du Val's garnet-colored, uncharacteristically feminine 2010 Reserve Pinot Noir has pleasing aromas of dark fruit and bing cherry with hints of spice and toast. On the palate, the wine offers bold, luscious flavors of black cherry balanced by notes of earth and well-integrated oak. This elegant and balanced wine displays silky tannins and a long finish. Delicious now, this wine has good acidity which bodes well for its potential to age and develop over time.
