Producer
One of the USA’s best respected producers of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Saintsbury has been championing an elegant, more “European” style for over twenty-five years. Dick Ward and David Graves met at oenology classes at UC Davis in 1977, and founded Saintsbury in 1981, two years before the Carneros appellation was officially recognized. Since then they have remained at the forefront of experimentation in both vineyard and cellar, with detailed investigation into (among other things) clones, irrigation and filtration helping them continually refine the style of their wines and stay at the top of the quality tree in these two varieties.

Vineyard
The grapes for this wine were sourced from over a dozen vineyards located throughout Carneros, with the emphasis on the Napa side of the appellation. The clones involved are Pommard, Swan, 115, 667 and 777.

Winery
The night-harvested fruit was sorted and fermented in open-top tanks. to facilitate gentle punching-down. The wine was then aged for eight months in French oak barriques with ten percent new wood.

Taste
A winning combination of generosity and finesse marks this Pinot Noir, which offers black cherry and spice aromas, an intense, focused palate and a long mineral finish.
