Tasting Note

A wonderfully rounded and soft Pinot Noir with sweet fruit of the forest and black cherries. Notes of spice and rose petal add extra depth and dimension to this beautifully balanced and velvety wine. This is a wonderful alternative to red Burgundy and at incredible value. (Nick)

The Producer

Domaine Carneros

TJ Evans’s focus on “the heartbreak grape” came to him in a way fitting to the varietal - a complex, humbling path to a revelation. Upon completion of his master’s degree in 1997, TJ worked the harvest at New Zealand’s Villa Maria Estate, apprenticed at France’s 500 year-old Domaine Jean-Louis Chave and served internships with Robert Mondavi Winery and Far Niente. Landing his first winemaking position with La Crema in California’s Russian River Valley, a winery highly acclaimed for its Pinot Noir, TJ’s obsession with Pinot Noir took root. In 2005, he traveled to Chile to develop a Chardonnay and Pinot Noir estate for Vinedos y Bodega Chardonnay and Pinot Noir estate for Vinedos y Bodegas Corpora before at last joining the Domaine Carneros team as Pinot Noir winemaker in 2008.
