Winemaker Notes: The 2019 The Shop Carneros Pinot Noir is in some ways a throwback to the riper, juicier style of the early Shop wines, but that is a product of the great 2019 vintage, rather than a change in style. I continue to pursue a fresher, more vibrant style for this wine in particular, and 2019 was no exception. Aged in a combination of concrete and neutral oak.
Tasting Notes: The wine emerges from the glass with dark red stone fruit a hint of spice, nuttiness, and licorice. This is a lush and fleshy, Pinot Noir that is loaded with class and pedigree. The wine is medium to full in body and flavor and finishes long and strong.
